If you have ever lived within an hour of a Sonic drive-in, you know their famous beverage the cherry limeade. A little bit tart and a touch sweet, the cherry limeade may just be the perfect summer drink. It is nostalgic too, reminiscent of something you'd order at an old soda fountain from a waitress named Lou.
Add in a bit of vodka, and there you have the perfect summer cocktail for a warm evening.
Last night I sipped one of these in my adirondack chair, with the twinkly lights sparkling and the evening breeze blowing through our little porch. A lovely evening indeed!
-2 parts vodka
-2 parts limeade (preferably Trader Joe's fresh squeezed)
-juice of quarter of lime
-1 maraschino cherry
1. Add first three ingredients to a cocktail shaker with lots of ice. Shake well.
2. Pour cold concoction over the cherry and enjoy!
