Vegan Spinach and Hominy Enchiladas With Spicy Cashew Cream

I modified the spicy cashew sauce for a vegan pizza. I soaked the cashews for a few hours and used the water they soaked in as the broth. In addition, I used three peppers and about 1/3c Nutritional Yeast. This made for a very tasty base and top sauce!! Great recipe. Will try out the full recipe, soon. It sounds incredible.

Upgraded Long Island Iced Tea

I realized recently that I had never made a LIIT and remembered this post. I was very pleased with the complex cola syrup and the flavor it adds to the drink, but a little disappointed in the recipe. I understand it is "upgraded," but in my opinion should more closely resemble the flavor that most associate with a LIIT. On my first try, I followed the recipe exactly and I think the citrus was too much and overpowered all the other flavors. I think the citrus should be decreased by at least half and some of the alcohols increased.

Thanks for the amazing cola syrup recipe and I will keep plugging away (maybe on a future nite because one of these is all I need) at tweaking the recipe until I get it to my desired taste.

Note: I was not using a carbonated shaker.

I am baffled by states differing open container laws. In Arkansas and a few other states, the passenger can drink while the vehicle is in motion. In Mississippi the driver can drink as long as not legally drunk.
