Cherry Limeade Cocktail


 
Summer heat and sunshine bring memories of lip smacking, icy cold drinks on the sandy beaches of southern Florida.  Lemonade, iced tea, orange coolers, pink grapefruit cocktails and luscious cherry limeade still bring a smile to my face and wonderful memories to my mind.

Chad, our mixologist, developed this Cherry Limeade Cocktail for my Mom and I during our vacation.  We agreed that it is a refreshing cocktail to tantalize your taste buds.  We certainly kept him mixing up these cocktails during the vacation.  Cherry Limeade Cocktail features a delightfully mouth puckering cherry vodka that is tart and sweet at the same time, with the sweet and sour zing of lime.  This drink will make your mouth water and your cheeks pucker and believe me, you will ask for seconds!

Do yourself a favor and use a bigger glass and make it a double!
Cherry Limeade Cocktail
1 ½ ounces Pucker Vodka Cherry
1 ½ ounces On the House Sweetened Lime Juice
½ tablespoon grenadine
2 ounces club soda
ice
lime wedge
maraschino cherry

Fill a cocktail glass with ice, add vodka, lime juice, club soda and grenadine.  Stir to combine.  Garnish with lime wedge and maraschino cherry.  Serve and enjoy.

  1. This looks awesome. Could you substitute lime juice and simple syrup for the On The House product? Or is there more in that than just lime and a sweetener?

    1. I am sure it would be fantastic with simple syrup and lime juice! I would use one ounce lime juice and one ounce simple syrup.

    2. If you love lemon, you have to try the Lucky Lemon Seven. It is by far my favorite lemon cocktail. We make it with small lemons because they are much more flavorful! http://www.theslowroasteditalian.blogspot.com/2012/01/lucky-lemon-seven.html
