Who needs Sonic when you can make your own “adult” cherry limeade at home?
Here is my recipe for a Gin Cherry Limeade Collins.
In a glass of ice add the following in this order:
1.5 oz shot of Gin
2 or 3 splashes of lime juice.
Top off with Cherry Limeade flavored seltzer water.
Stir. Don’t add anything else until you stir.
Garnish with a slice of lime. Be sure to rub the lime all around the mouth of the glass, leaving behind as much pulp as possible.
Add two maraschino cherries.
Pour in about 2 teaspoons worth of cherry juice from the jar (could also use Grenadine). The cherry juice will settle to the bottom, creating a lovely layered effect.
These are unreasonably delicious and go down fast. Remember to pace yourself so as not to end up face down on the table.
