I hesitate to post this recipe because it will push strawberry cream crepes off the front page of this site and I love them so much. I’ll miss their photo. Maybe I’ll have to turn that photo into my computer wallpaper. Then I can see it anytime. How rude of me, though, to be talking about another recipe when it is the Lime Rickey’s turn. Sorry. This recipe is so good too. You can hardly call it a recipe. It’s more like a soda with fresh lime . . . but it is so good, I had to include it. This drink is so refreshing, and the combination of lime and grape is fantastic. If you can get a hold of crushed ice, you’ll be even happier. That is, in my opinion, the best kind of ice out there. Sonic Drive-In carries it. Or your local deli might sell you some.
1 can Welch’s grape soda
Add crushed ice to glass. Slice lime in wedges. Squeeze juice from lime wedges into glass, reserving one for garnish, if desired. Fill glass with Welch’s grape soda. Kick your feet up. Enjoy! If you want an extra refreshing touch: pre-chill glass in freezer for one hour.
