Tequila Cherry Limeade: The best Memorial Day weekend drink to cool down with

Yesterday, we brought you the best guacamole recipe we know created by Anna-Lara, so for today's Friday drink, I thought it would be great to find something delicious to go with it. If you're looking for a good way to cool down this Memorial Day weekend, then consider mixing up this cool, tasty treat: Tequila Cherry Limeade.

This drink is pure tastiness. It's refreshing and perfect for relaxing in the warm afternoon with--an excellent way to kick off summer. 

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Serves: 3-4


3-6oz of Jose Cuervo Gold (depending on how strong you'd like it. I used 6oz)
12 oz of limeade concentrate
12 oz of cherry 7Up
1 lime
maraschino cherries

Step 1: Pour the Cuervo into a pitcher. One shot glass is 1.5oz, so if you're adding 6 oz then pour in 4 shots. Add the limeade concentrate and cherry 7Up and stir it all together. 

Step 2: Pour over ice into your glasses (my Mason Jar glass pictured here holds 15oz. I filled about 1/3 of my cup with ice before pouring the limeade over to make certain there was plenty to share). 

Step 3: Slice your lime into 4 wedges and add each wedge to the glasses along with one maraschino cherry. 

Prepare to experience delicious flavor. 

Hope you all have safe travels over Memorial Day weekend!
