#ThurstyThursday: Cherry Lime-onade

I wanted to find a good St. Patrick's Day drink, but I came across this one and knew I had to try it out. I changed it up a little bit from the original recipe. And let me just tell you. Watch out now! This little devil will come up from behind and smack you right on your ASS!! You can't even taste the vodka....and it's so mother frakin good!!

Once again, this reminds me of late summer nights on the deck catching fireflies. Maybe it's because I can't wait for that. It's my favorite time of year, by far. I guess you could drink this whenever, but either way, nice cold delicious cocktails remind me of good friends and making bad decisions.

Cherry Lime-onade
3 shots cherry vodka
1 shot cherry juice (from jar of maraschino cherries)
1.5 shots limeade concentrate, thawed
1.5 shots lemonade concentrate, thawed
4-6 cherries, muddled
the rest Sprite

P.S. I can't figure out ounces or parts or any of that shit. I just kinda do it.
P.S.S. Keep in mind I made mine in a large mason jar

Add all ingredients together. Sip it!!! Cheers!!

  4. this sounds like it would be super sweet but super worth it. plus I always have cherry juice on hand. it's totally going in the summertime drink rotation.

  5. Holy yum. Cherry Limeades (well diet cherry limeades from Sonic) are my FAVORITE thing ever so I have to try this.

  6. Looks delish! Don't think I've had cherry vodka before.

  7. For some reason I can't wait for summer this year and usually I am not a fan. I hope that means that something good is going to happen to me for once! This looks delicious!

  8. I must make this immediately!!!!! Cheers!

  9. I'm still looking for recipes to use with my bottle of Absolut Cherrys, so this is perfect! And I can never figure out measurements or official either - I usually just use an old shot glass, haha! But at least it keeps it all in proportion! Hope you have a great weekend! xoxo

  10. Oh yum! This looks and sounds delish! I bet you have to be careful! Yummy drinks like this tend to sneak up on me for sure! I will have to try making this this summer as the weather warms up! Thanks for sharing!
