I was looking for a nice non-alcoholic drink to work with our spaghetti day, when I came across this one for a Sicilian Splash. This drink, which was supposed to be a seasonal summer drink over at Olive Garden, was such a huge hit with the customers, it stayed on the menu. It's a blended drink with the right amount of juice and sparkling water. I think it would probably be nicer on the rocks, and a little more season as well (although, a blended drink in the dead of winter might be a nice way to bring the summer zing into your home). To check out the recipe,
4 cups ice
3/8 cup white grape juice
1/4 cup orange soda
Sparkling water, as needed
1 lemon slice, for garnish
Blend in order given. Serve in a tall fluted glass, with lemon slice and straw.
My variation would be to omit the ice, mix grape and orange juice together, top off with sparkling water. Serve on the rocks.
