Summertime Blues? Not With This Cherry Limeade

cherry limeade summer 1So we’ve skipped spring this year. Big deal. It’s hot – already in the 90s in April. Is that what’s got you down?

Fear no more. Here’s the recipe you’ve been waiting for: the Three Olives® Cherry Vodka Limeade. Be sure you get the Three Olives® Cherry Vodka for this too. Experts have advised me, so I’m just passing that along. In fact, there’s some really awful flavored-vodkas out there, so don’t mess around with this key ingredient.

Anyway, start with a 16-oz glass. Fill it with ice. Squeeze in a couple of lime slices, maybe even a couple-a-couple of lime slices. Add a shot of Three Olives® Cherry Vodka. (The original recipe I came across called for 2 ½ oz of the stuff, but that will kick your butt, so be careful!)

Next, pour in a couple of splashes of sweet-n-sour mix. And then, finally, top it off with (your choice) of ginger ale or club soda. I’ve also found that Cherry 7-Up is a nice thing to add instead of ginger ale or club soda.

Stir, add a straw, sit back and sip this delicious little cooler-offer. Watch the temperature climb. You won’t care, I guarantee it!
