Been FOREVERRRR since I posted…been super busy running a dining room and kitchen in a camp, but before camp I tested out a couple of recipes to try to post over the summer. While camp is almost over, its better late then never…and this one is worth the wait too.
Delicious and refreshing wine n’ lime cocktail. Sweet, alcoholly, and tart, this drink is a keeper. Plus it’s a pretty color too. Its perfect for a hot summer day (but you can totally have in the winter too 😉 ). My dad came up with this when we had an abundance of limes in the fridge…we all fell in love and demanded he make it more often.
Very easy to make and it keeps in the fridge, so you can make for the week.
This recipe does not have exact measurements, because it is dependent on the amount you want to make. This is measured out in proportions – if you want to make a small amount do 1/4 cup or less. If you want to make a big batch, you can use 1 cup as the base measure. Either way its easy and yummy to make, so enjoy!
