Cherry Vanilla Limeade

By Parentingsmh @parentingsmh
My son loves limeade, but he can't have any of this limeade.  It ain't for the kiddos.
One of the great things about summer is the adult refreshments.  Hell, who am I kidding, I can mix a drink for every season on request.  But I digress.
I started getting creative this summer with beverages.  I make a mean rum punch and my new favorite, cherry vanilla limeade.

This is a great sit out on the deck or porch at a cook out drink, but be careful, too many and you might find yourself under the porch.
  • 2 cans frozen limeade
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 liters lime carbonated water, chilled
  • 1/4 cup Grenadine
  • 8 maraschino cherries with stems
  • 8 lime slices
  • 1 cup vanilla vodka
Mix it: In a large bowl, mix the limeade, sugar, and vodka.  Cover and refrigerate.  Just before serving, stir in the carbonated lime water. For each serving add a 1/2 tbspn grenadine, crushed ice, and top with a maraschino cherry and slice of lime. Now, since this is more of a summer drink, I suggest turning up the heat and playing Bob Marley.  Enjoy! This post was inspired by the almost world famous Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop.
