Baby it’s hot outside so bring on the cold drinks.  This is a great drink for parties or just hanging out on a hot summer night.   With the addition on tequila it become a party worthy cocktail or without the alcohol it works as a refreshing drink that even the kiddos can enjoy.  Fresh fruit in a cold drink makes for a winner! Just think you could count it as a serving of fruit now you can call it healthy.

When ever I have fruit  in season I try to freeze some for drinks, pies, sauces, salad dressings, crumbles or smoothies you get the idea.  So chances are I have whatever fruit I might need right in the freezer.  I also like to freeze citrus like lime, lemons and clementines juice as frozen cubes.  Just juice and fill ice trays then when frozen place in gallon zip-lock freezer bags to use when ever you need them. This drink is a combo of frozen lime cubes and frozen cherries.

With frozen fruit and juice cubes it only takes a little effort  to be ready for a party or just a cold drink any time of the year!

Agave nectar is a great way to sweeten a little without using sugar.
