Thanks for checking in with my Military Life's Moments blog ! : ) Ruth
When it is HOT and you want an adult beverage, my friend Donna has a great recipe for that – Sneaky Pete for Grown Ups! It is wonderful for a pool party or just hanging out together. Also, she said I could share it.
We have enjoyed this for many years. One of the perks of sharing recipes with your military friends is that whenever you make it later, you will always remember them. Sneaky Pete is a recipe like that for us. We remember sitting by the Pinckney’s pool enjoying this with them. Awesome memories to savor along with a tasty summer adult beverage = Win!

*** When making this you will need to clear space in the freezer for a large container to freeze overnight. (We typically have made it in our Tupperware – like cake keeper box that we use as a bowl.)
48 oz Cranberry juice
12 oz Orange juice concentrate – thawed
12 oz Pink lemonade concentrate – thawed
1 liter of Ginger ale
750 ml Rum – of your choice
Mix it all together well.
Recipe Option – Sneaky Ivan – You may substitute vodka for the rum.
Serve as a slushy summer time adult beverage in a plastic cup or a fancy glass.
We typically serve it with both a straw and a long spoon at more casual summer gatherings.
For more formal gatherings, you can serve in a punch bowl with lemon slices and cranberries as garnish for an adult punch. (I would recommend using smaller bowls that you can alternate from the table to the freezer if you do this.)
Happy Summertime! : )
Honestly, Sneaky Pete looks so cool and refreshing that the kids will want some too! Watch out. : )
