Cherry Limeade Fizzbang

Doesn't a Cherry Limeade Fizzbang 
sound good in this hot, July weather?
I came up with this recipe as a healthy alternative to soda pop.

Cherry Limeade Fizzbang
Limes (~3 per serving)
Cherries (~6 per serving)
Honey (~1 Tablespoon per serving)
Sparkling mineral water

Juice the limes.
Remove the stem and pit from the cherries.
Add the lime juice and cherries to a blender.
Add some honey (to taste).
Whip the lime, cherry, honey mixture until smooth.
Add more honey if necessary and blend again.
Pour this mixture into an ice-filled glass (1/2 to 2/3 full).
Fill the remainder of the glass with cold sparkling mineral water.

The amounts in this recipe are highly customizable.
You can use more or less lime or cherries or honey.
Try using freshly squeezed lemons or grapefruit.
You could use fresh blueberries, strawberries or any fruit you like.

If you dislike bits in your drink, strain the 
blended mixture before pouring over ice.

This is best when sipped through a colorful straw.

Unlike soda pop, this drink leaves you feeling great!

8th Annual Mad Tea Party - Winner(s)!

Alas, I was unable to determine who was following my blog on Bloglovin.
(Thank you to those following!)
So, everyone who commented was included in the drawing.
(Thank you to all who commented!)
The drawing took place today using a very scientific method.
 All commenter names were placed in the Mad Hatter's 
hat and drawn by my husband without peeking.
And the winners are:
1) Beverly of Savannah Nana - Tea Party Alice
2) Jeanie of Marmalade Gypsy - Dark Alice

I decided to give away all the Alice Dolls.
My husband claimed Classic Alice for his mother.
I won't dispute the claim.

So, I will be contacting Beverly and Jeanie to get their shipping information.

Congratulations!  This was fun.
