Vodka Cherry Limeade


If you’re looking for a special cocktail to get your lover in the mood … well, this one might do it. Vodka cherry limeade is easy drinkin’ with the added benefits of all the off-color “cherry” jokes you could make. You know, about sex and other romantic stuff for Valentine’s Day. Which is tomorrow. Did you remember? Well, fret not either way. If you forgot  — somehow — you can easily grab all the ingredients for this simple cocktail just about anywhere that sells booze and mixers. If you remembered, and are going to be alone and wallowing in sorrow, then this drink is probably a good idea for you, too.

Plus it has antioxidants to keep your libido from oxidizing and rusting out.

    Hi Hilah! I couldn’t stop thinking about these once I read the post! I changed it up a tiny bit, I used frozen (thawed but not reconstituted) limeade instead of the lime juice + Roses lime. I keep limes around the house but not Roses Lime.. anyway I didn’t exactly measure but I think I did more like 6 parts cherry juice to 2 parts limeade and 3 parts vodka, and after stirring well I poured the mix into a tall glass full of crushed ice until it was half full, then filled to the top with club soda. We were working outside and it was hot! I made a big jug of mix so I didn’t have to keep making them one at a time. (Shut up! It was 3 of us working/drinking). DELISH!

    I had no club soda but some very good fresh cherry juice and good vodka and the lime juice.So I guess mine was more of a cherry limeade martini!Very good!
