Vodka Cherry Limeade for #ImprovCookingChallenge
Welcome to another month of The Improv Cooking Challenge! We were challenged to use Cherry and Lime in this month's Improv Cooking Challenge. Find our group on Facebook if you're interested in joining in the fun; Nicole from Cookaholic Wife hosts our group!
This is a very tasty cocktail - perfect little punch of sweetness and tartness to relax in the afternoon by the pool with! And if you want the non-alcoholic version, skip the vodka and you still have a delicious and fun drink to enjoy, reminiscent of the ones you'd get at Sonic, or for me they remind me of the one you can get at Firehouse Subs who happen to have this as part of their fountain drink offerings; or they did the last time I went into a Firehouse Sub shop!
I thought the drink was a little strong - so be forewarned; I'd cut the alcohol amount in half next time and go from there.
Come see all of the cherry and lime recipes that we're sharing today!
