I had a super rad Blog BFF come visit me yesterday, and during our visit we sipped the most refreshing and super delicious beverage, and I just so happened to have sugar-rimmed glasses and a tad bit of twine on hand to make it taste "that" much better! ;) Dontcha think that everything tastes better in a sugar rimmed glass? I most definitely think so!
Are you melting in your home town like we are in San Antonio? This place is HOT folks, and there's no sign of rain any time soon...maybe that's why I have the most RIDICULOUS
tan burn line from Sea World last week, but that is completely besides the point....
If you're wanting a cool, unusual and incredibly refreshing drink to have on hand for when your cronies pop in for a visit, this my dear friends, is the bev for you!
You might want the recipe...so here it is. SO easy peasy and fast!
1 can frozen limeade concentrate
1 two liter of your favorite clear DIET soda ( I used diet Sierra Mist)
a few slices of cucumber, and some reserved for garnish.
mound of sugar on a plate
small bowl of water about 1/4" deep
Throw your frozen limeade in a pitcher and dump in your diet soda & mix. Then slice up some cucumber and throw a few slices in the pitcher and place in fridge. More cucumber= more cucumbery flavor.
While the limeade is getting happy in the fridge, take your stemware and place the rim in the bowl of water and transfer into the sugar on the plate. Twist glass once or twice to cover rim, then transfer to a paper towel. MAKE SURE your glass is still upside down, let dry for a few minutes. This way the sugar will have a chance to harden and not run down your glass making an unsightly mess :)
After your limeade is chilled go ahead and fill your glasses and garnish with a slice of cucumber.
SUPER tasty. Hope you get a chance to whip this up and share it with those you love!
