shiso juice: "Red shiso is a Japanese perilla herb and is used for dyeing pickled ume. I would boil red perilla leaves with water, vinegar, and sugar and serve with cold soda or water. Tastes great and it's good for Japanese summer heat. It is a family recipe for summer here in Japan." —Naoko
White Wine Sangria with Pineapples and Mango Nectar 1 bottle white wine (a good $15 bottle is fine) 1 ripe pineapple cut into slices 1 orange sliced thin 1 cup brandy (optional) 2 cups mango nectar (I found this at Costco!) 2 cups pineapple soda (I used Pineapple Crush) Mix everything together in a pitcher with the sliced pineapple and orange. Refrigerate for at least a few hours (overnight is better). Enjoy!
