Here’s a tip page from a vintage cookbook using 7-Up in a variety of ways you may not have thought of.
- Freeze 7-Up in ice cube trays. Use the tangy “ice” cubes to spark party drinks.
- A thrifty New England style dinner is smoked pork butt with tangy maple glaze. Cook the meat as usual, then glaze with a mixture of one 7-ounce bottle 7-Up and 1/2 cup maple syrup.
- Delight the youngsters with mock Champagne Punch made by combining equal parts of 7-Up and cranberry juice cocktail.
- Baste broiling fish fillets with 7-Up for a tangy citrus flavor accent.
- Chocolate sauce for ice cream and desserts is tangy when you melt 3 squares of baking chocolate with a cup of sugar and a 7-ounce bottle 7-Up.
- Fresh fruit has more zip when 7-Up is poured over it. A large bowl of sliced fresh apples, peaches, pears or berries should be sweetened a little, then chilled 7-Up added just before serving time.
- Evenly browned pie crusts are easy when you use 7-Up as the liquid in your favorite pastry recipe.
