What’s a weekend without a cocktail or two? Not much if you ask me! 😉 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.
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
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!
