Cocktails, Anyone?

Last night I met a dear friend of mine for dinner and drinks. We were long overdue for a catch up session and as luck would have it, our schedules aligned for a delightful al fresco happy hour and dinner. Wednesday night was "Ladies Night" and we indulged in the most delicious cocktail special.
I immediately went home and googled the recipe. I was so happy to find it and wanted to share it with you. It is Friday-eve after all!

Take it from me, this is definitely a keeper for those hot summer days by the pool and date nights at home! So here you go...pure gold my friends, pure gold. 

Vodka Cherry Limeade

{via}

Ingredients:
2 ounces cherry vodka
1 ounce lime juice (fresh squeezed is best but concentrate will also work)
4 ounces Sprite or 7-Up (you can use diet for a lighter version)
1/2 ounce cherry juice (you can use juice from the jar of cherries or find it bottled in the mixed drink section of the grocery)
1 maraschino cherry

Directions:
1. Fill a 16 ounce glass with ice or a Mason Jar if you're feeling Southern :)
2. Add first four ingredients
3. Stir
4. Garnish with a cherry and lime wedge
5. Enjoy!


There you have it. A deliciously appropriate cocktail for summer. 
Try it and let me know what you think! 
Cheers!
