Ooh, for the love of cherries! Here in Florida, it's dark, sweet cherry season all the way through to the end of August. Since I had not done anything cherry related on the blog since May—the start of the season—it was best I bring you a simple Cherry Lime Mocktail before it's said and done!
As always, I'm hitting you with a simple La Croix collaboration. I love their variety of sparkling waters. From pineapple strawberry to cherry lime to blackberry cucumber, I absolutely love their "curaté" line of infused water. Have you tried them out?
It's no surprise they were mentioned in People Magazine as one of the top 100 favorite American drinks. I mean, duh! I always have La Croix in my fridge and, if not, I have some in the cabinet above the microwave. My wife and I literally have a cabinet specifically for our boxes of La Croix. Call me crazy!
I had so much fun with my wife and her side of the family a few weeks ago for her birthday. We went to Port Charlotte, which is southwest of us, where our niece, nephew and their parents live. They were at our house a few weeks before the big 25th birthday boating adventure in Fort Myers—nearby—and then they would reunite with their parents. It was such a successful pineapple party!
Since I've already killed it with the pineapple extravaganza here on the blog, I thought I would hit you with a surprising Cherry Lime Mocktail, super sweet with a hint of tang. You can't go wrong with a can of La Croix.
