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!
The addition of tequila this simple drink becomes a cocktail.
Agave nectar is a great way to sweeten a little without using sugar.
Now for the drink!
