my signature drink

Do you have a signature drink? I do...fresh limeade (sparkly) not just the juice like lemonade. It's what I always order when going out, or whenever I am at a party and people are drinking cocktails because I don't drink. It's perfect--clean and fresh but with a little zip! Sonic makes a mean one, so does Bills Barbeque in VA, but no such luck here in New England. Usually I have to make my own with a combo of Sprite and a fresh lime (its best if the Sprite comes from a fountain dispenser rather than a can or bottle) and the lime wedges have to be squeezed well. It's best with 2-3 wedges to 8-10 oz of ice cold sprite. My kids like to sneak in and drink it all up.
So if you're ever serving up drinks-- you know what I'll be having!

Yum! My "party" drink is San Pellegrino - must be ice cold, but absolutely no ice, with lime. My latest obsession, though, is Sonic's strawberry limeade, easy ice (even better during Happy Hour!)

I'm a LOVER of citrus - especially lemons or limes. I'll have to try this one. I don't like carbonation very much so I prefer lemonade - freshly squeezed lemonade that is.

I make a yummy virgin strawberry daiquiri when I have little get togethers. I also make chocolate mint Italian soda's on a regular basis. Saves me $3 each time I make my own.
