You Have Some 'Splaining to Do

Three Saturday Sparklers (non-alcoholic) to quench your thirst...

1.The Lime Rickey
It cools you off faster than it takes to mix it up!

What you need:
Grape Juice
7-Up (Really, don't use Sprite, or Sierra Mist, or Gingerale, or...)

Mix Grape Juice and 7-Up to Taste (I like less Grape, Ky likes more); squeeze in your lime and decorate with the lime left over. Serve over Ice.

2. The Shirley Temple
My friend, Lindsey's favorite, the Shirley Temple is a mocktail sure to tingle the tasters.

What you need:
Grenadine Syrup (look in the drink mixers at your supermarket)
Gingerale or Lemon-lime Soda (again, 7-Up is best, but this one you can use whatever you want)
**Optional Orange Juice**
Marachino Cherries

Mix it to taste and Enjoy!

3. The Honey Tart
A Honey Limeade wakes you up while cooling you down.
What You Need:
1 cup lime juice
5 cups water
2/3 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons honey
A quick shot of 7-Up

Mix it up; Make sure Sugar is Disolved.  Add 7-Up to make it sparkle. Enjoy over Ice.


  1. honey tart! I'll try it...Happy weekend

  2. I have always loved Shirley Temples - some days I'll still order it and people are like, "what are you, 12?" Bahh.. I don't care. Love them :)
