We need good cocktails more than ever, y’all. Ive been going through my fair share of vodka – and crushes will always be my favorite way to put it to good use.
Orange Crushes are the gold standard, and probably the first thing that folks think of when someone mentions crushes. But honey, I’ve done crushed every fruit under the sun. Grapefruit, strawberry, watermelon, cantaloupe, coconut, lemon – I even wrote an article about my love for them in Chesapeake Bay Magazine last summer!
But in the times we are in, you may not have a plethora of fresh fruit available to turn into cocktails. That’s why I love these Cherry Lime Crushes – because I’ll usually have all the ingredients on hand. And, thats awful handy these days.
We are looking forward to some warm temperatures and sunshine this weekend here on our little island, I hope that you all get a taste of it too wherever you may be. And also, these crushes. Stay safe, friends!
