Mystery Ingredients

Sylvia G Feb 21, 2005 02:02 PM

I found a post-it note in my junk drawer with the following ingredients:

1 and 1/2 cups orange juice
3/4 cup lemon juice
3 TBS orange peel
1 and 1/2 TBS lemon peel

I was obviously copying down a recipe from a magazine somewhere, but I don't have any idea what it was for.

Anyone have any ideas?

    Some sort of punch or cocktail

    Some sort of marinade

    First one more likely

      A sorbet or granita?

        That's what I was going to say, too. A marinade would likely have herbs and spices added.

            Thanks, everyone. I bet it was the granita - I like to make those, so it was likely I copied down those ingredients.

            But I did love the idea of the Scurvy Kit! Only on this Board . . . .
