Yesterday I showed you the Lime Zest soap and I promised that I would show you what I make with the juice from the limes. As a little girl I remember our family making grape lime rickeys during the hot days of summer. This drink is a wonderfully cool refreshment that anyone will enjoy!
This recipe can be vague and will depend on different tastes. I have found that adults enjoy more lime in their grape lime rickey while children prefer more grape syrup.
Collect needed items:
Cut a lime in half and squeeze one or both halves of the lime into the empty drinking glass. Dispose of the squeezed limes however you desire. Fill the drinking glass with the desired amount of ice. Now pour the soda over the ice. I used one can of Sprite Zero for this glass. Add a splash of grape syrup. I typically use between 1 – 4 tablespoons of grape syrup for a 12 fl oz can of soda. Stir well with either a spoon or straw. If you desire, cut a thin slice of lime for garnishment and then serve.
Enjoy because I know I will!
Stay tuned tomorrow to see how we make this fun drink into a soap!
I bet this would be good with concentrated grape juice (freezer kind) instead of the syrup, to cut down on sugar but still have flavor!
I so love your web site and blog. I like the way you show everything.
