This delicious libation brings about fond memories from the late 70’s and early 80’s when my mom and dad would have friends over to play cards – Royal Rummy to be exact.
It also was a refreshing summer drink for when her good friend Donna would stop by and visit with my mom at our kitchen table. I could hear their laughter through the screened windows and doors no matter where I was playing in the yard. So, it only makes sense that this drink be associated with summer and fun.
Bring 3-1/2 cups water and 1 cup sugar to a boil.
Add 6 oz frozen lemon juice and 6 oz frozen orange juice. Cool.
Add 1 cup brandy.
Freeze. Scoop and serve with 7-up or other lemon-lime soda.
Tip: My mom used an old ice cream bucket for freezing.
