Summer is almost here! (Except if you live in Wisconsin, then spring is almost here….)

Regardless of what climate you are living in, easy-to-make summer cocktails for the busy BBQing days ahead are something that you will want to have on the ready.

This refreshing cherry limeade uses tart cherry juice, but don’t worry, the sweetness of the Amaretto balances out all the tartness going on here. The result is a fruity cocktail with a little punch and a whole lot of summer vibe.

But living in the tundra (like I do) doesn’t mean that you have to wait for sweltering days to enjoy this cocktail recipe. This Amaretto-spiked cherry limeade goes great with barbecue, but it also pairs quite well with my Instant Pot Hamburger Stew. Both are punchy – yet a little sweet…. 

…like the weather up here in Wisconsin right now; you want to punch it, but when summer finally gets here (and it will), it is ever so sweet.


How to make the Nutty Cherry Limeade:

What you’ll need:

  • 3 ounces Amaretto
  • 3 ounces tart cherry juice
  • 2 ounces lime juice
  • splash club soda
