I was looking for a family friendly beverage for our New Years Eve Party we throw at the house each year. I was looking on some websites and found this wicked easy Cherry Limeade version by the Pioneer Woman of the Food TV Network.


The results were pretty spot on. Note: In the recipe, I find that this drink is best served over pebble ice. Don’t know what pebble ice is? Go to Sonic – that’s what they serve in their drinks. And, you can buy it from them in 10 lb bags! Trust me it’s worth it.
