Thank you Nielsen-Massey Vanillas for sponsoring this recipe and post. All opinions are my own.
Every celebration deserves a signature drink. Whether it’s a cocktail or a refreshing, sparkling lemonade. Or in our case today, a sparkling cherry limeade!! Last summer my signature drink for gatherings was this sparkling strawberry cucumber limeade and everyone loved it! But we are taking things up a notch this year with another fruity limeade with a little dash of almond extract to our cherry.
I love adding almond extract to my cakes and pies but I love it in drinks too. Remember when these mango margaritas? We had a secret ingredient in it and we using the same here too. Almond brings out the flavor in a lot of fruits, especially cherries. I used Nielsen-Massey’s Pure Almond Extract in these cherry limeades! I also added a little bit of dark rum I had left over and it was a delicious addition. So if you are making this for an adult gathering, be sure to add a little bit of rum or vodka.
Now, I’m hoping all goes well with my final exam on Wednesday so I can celebrate with this cherry limeade. It will be perfect to relax with on a hot summer day or to bring along to a picnic at the park.
