Cherry Limeade! Hands Down! The stuff is dangerous because it goes down so smoothly and quickly!

 

I don't know quantities, we usually set up everything up on the bar and people can make them as strong as they like.

 

Start with the Simply Lime Limeade

(minute maid makes a cherry limeade but it's not as good)

Add Cherry Vodka (1 oz)

Add a Citrus Vodka (1/2 oz)

Shake the above 3 together. You can strain into a Martini glass or drink over ice

Float a little bit of cherry juice/syrup over the top

 

If you want it to be fizzy, you can add some sprite.

 

I really does taste like summer!

My favorite is a bellini...Yummy...

 

This drink was created 1943 at Harry's Bar in Venice, Italy in honor of the painter Geovani Bellini. Giuseppi Cipriani was the inventor. The original recipe was made with fresh pureed white peaches with a bit of raspberry or cherry juice to give the drink a pink glow.

Quick version

1 parts Peach Schnapps

3 parts Champagne (or Sparkling wine)

 

Combine in champagne flutes, serve.

 

Original Version

2/3 cup white peach puree (use yellow peaches if white not available)

1 teaspoon raspberry puree

1 bottle chilled Italian sparkling wine such as Prosecco or any sparkling wine

 

Place 1 1/2 tablespoons puree In the bottom of each flute and add 2 - 3 drops of the raspberry puree. Add sparkling wine and serve.

 

Raspberry puree: Puree fresh or frozen (thawed) berries in a food processor.

 

Peach puree: Peel fresh peaches, cut up in pieces and blend in a food processor.

 

Serving glass: Tall champagne flutes
