Captain America From: Five Little Chefs

Do you have a superhero dad? Then this drink is for him! It is a bright and colourful, non-alcoholic drink that can easily be adapted to your dads taste buds with his favourite liquor! Personally I would suggest a nice vodka to balance out the sweetness of the drink! Or, if you prefer, leave it kid friendly and let everyone feel like a superhero for the day! Be sure to get your superhero party supplies and go all out with the theme to spoil your own hero!

      I often make my own variations without alcohol, adding in soda water or tonic instead just to add to it. Either way, they are all delish! 🙂
