“Splish-Splash” Did Someone Say Pool Parties!

Pool party’s can always be taken up a notch- Here are some tips to keep in mind for the next party you might want to throw.

Ingredients:
– Lime Sherbet
– Vanilla ice cream or Pineapple sherbet
– Red/Pink-colored sherbet…I couldn’t find this, so I bought Raspberry/Pineapple/Orange swirl sherbet, mixed it up with red food coloring and it was perfect!
– Mini chocolate chips

Directions:
1. For each flavor, you’ll let the sherbet/ice cream soften for a few minutes before using. The red sherbet should be mixed with the mini chocolate chips.
2. Use a round springform pan. You may want to line the bottom of the pan with wax paper or parchment paper if you plan to transfer the entire “pie” to another dish before serving. I served the slices on plates straight out of the freezer, so I didn’t line the pan. It’s actually cuter sliced!
3. Starting with lime, spread a ring of sherbet around the edge of the springform pan – about 2 inches high (or taller if you want!), and about 1-2 inches wide from the outside edge of the pan.
4. Put pan in freezer to harden lime layer.
5. Repeat step 3 with the vanilla, but make the layer much thinner – maybe 1/2 inch. Use a butter knife to flatten the top, even-ing out the lime with the vanilla. Put pan in freezer to harden again.
6. Repeat step 3 with the red/chocolate chip sherbet. Fill the rest of the pan, then use a butter knife to flatten the top. Freeze!
7. When it’s time to eat, run a knife around the edge of the pan before popping off the outside of the springform pan. Use a nice thin-blade knife to slice.

Ingredients:

100ml gin
60ml sweet vermouth
60ml Campari
20ml Cointreau
40ml fresh lemon juice
2 dashes angostura bitters
500ml good quality lemonade or ginger ale

Directions:

Take a two-pint pitcher, half fill with ice and add the garnish fruits. These should be lemon, lime, orange, apple, cucumber, strawberries and mint, but anything else goes! Add the alcoholic ingredients and stir; fill up the pitcher with ice and add the lemonade. Serve in chilled glasses and (depending on your generosity) with fruit forks.

    The Las Vegas hotel pool area is for free and it’s nearby. Pools at other url:http://travel.ian.com/index.jsp?pageName=hotNetList&cid=142879&city=LASVEGAS,NV&stateProvince=&country=US&hotel=2 las vegas hotels are really nice, and usually they’ll put a charge on your bathing.
