Saturday Cocktail – Cherry Limeade

Cherry Limeade Cocktail

Happy Saturday!

What’s a weekend without a cocktail or two? ¬†Not much if you ask me! ūüėČ ¬†Today I’m sharing my version of one of my favourite drinks from the Yard House. ¬†Unfortunately here in Canada we don’t have any Yard House locations…actually perhaps that’s a good thing because I would eat and drink there way too often. ¬†If you ever visit them I’d highly recommend their Queso Dip – it’s pretty much the most amazing thing ever.

Another one of my favourite items on their menu are their Cherry Limeades. ¬†I discovered them last year at their Vegas location and I was hooked. It’s the perfect drink for summer…or anytime really. ¬†So I thought I’d try to make them at home for the time when I really feel like one and can’t make it to a Yard House location hundreds of miles away.

According to they menu, the cherry limeade contains Cruzan Black Cherry Rum, Amaretto Disaronno, citrus agave, fresh lime, and a sugared rim.

Cherry Limeade Cocktail

Here’s the recipe for my at-home version:

1 Shot Bacardi Torched Cherry Rum
1 Shot Disaronno Amaretto
Splash of Rose’s Grenadine
Minute Maid Simply Limeade
Fresh lime

Combine the first¬†3 ingredients in a cocktail shaker with the desired amount of ice. ¬†Shake it like a polaroid picture (sorry, couldn’t help it). ¬†Pour into a short glass. ¬†Top with limeade. Squeeze in fresh lime juice and garnish with a slice of lime. ¬†Enjoy.

Adjust the sweetness to your liking using more or less grenadine. ¬†Adjust the tartness with the¬†fresh lime juice. ¬†You can also add salt to the rim but I was being lazy and didn’t feel like bothering with that step.


Where’s your favourite cocktail? ¬†Let me know below!

Have a great weekend!
