Yesterday was cloudy and had a light breeze. It was cool enough outside that I had my windows open and it kept my house cool. My A.C. hardly turned on.
Today, my A.C. hasn't turned off. It is very very warm. A refreshing, cold, drink was a MUST.
I have made this Sunrise Punch from The Pioneer Woman a few times now. It is creamy and frothy and totally hits the spot.
The magical ingredient is Meringue Powder. It makes this drink so frothy and it stays frothy for a long time.
Meringue Powder can be found at any baking supply store or even at your local grocery store, if they have a cake decorating section. One container is only a few dollars and it will last a really long time. I like to add it to my icings (like in this recipe and this recipe). It helps the icing harden like on donuts from the bakery.
So, pick yourself up a container of meringue powder and make this incredibly delicious drink. You will love it and want to make it all Summer long.
If the juice and the froth start to separate, just stir it back together with your straw.
