One year in August, we were at Jack's for some pre-season Chiefs football. It was hot and I was tired of beer. I wanted something cool and refreshing and this is what I ended up with.

Served at

Jack's House, El Dorado, Ks


1 can Minute Maid all Limeade
3 cans vodka
1 can water
grenadine (optional)
garnish: lime wedge, cherry


Mix together in a pitcher, making sure limeade has completely thawed.
Serve either on the rocks in a tall Collins glass or by using a shaker-put about 6 oz. Springtime in first, then fill with crushed ice and shake. Pour into frosty Collins glass, chilled works too. Add a couple drops grenadine, if desired. Garnish with a cherry and lime wedge on rim of glass .
