Frozen Cherry Lime Ricky

    frozen cherry lime ricky

    When warm weather hits, I love cooling off with a slushy, delicious drink such as this Frozen Cherry Lime Ricky. By blending fresh or frozen fruit with a little ice and simple syrup, you are well on your way to a healthier happy hour. My recipe doesn’t include alcohol but this would be fabulous with rum. No cherries? No problem. Try the same method with frozen peaches, fresh watermelon or raspberries. No limes? Use lemons. No rum? Use vodka.

    Your straw is waiting.
