Lime Dew Drop

Sometimes I close my eyes, and I'm far, far away...
 
I'm wearing an oversized sun hat, large shades, red lipstick and a size 2 swimsuit...
 
Then, I open my eyes, and I'm right back to the oversized tshirt, mom capris, and messy hair..
 
The sweltering sun that I feel on my face isn't from a clean, white beach.... its really from the reflection of my concrete drive, as I'm weeding flower beds...
 
Truth is, y'all... I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.... with anyone else.
 
BUT - I do like those little drinks with umbrellas in them..
 
I've gotta admit it.
 
So, today we made a "weedin' flower beds" drink.
 
(Minus the cute umbrellas)
 
 

 
 
We called it the "Lime Dew Drop"....
 
Its so easy!
 
Fill a glass with cold Mountain Dew, and top it off with a couple of scoops of lime sherbet.
 
My little garden helper is drinking a caffeine free "Lime Sprite Drop", cause Mama can't handle a little girl, "All jacked up  on Mountain Dew!"
 
 
Go enjoy a cold, yummy treat, y'all... no matter where you are!

    1. I'm starting back on my clean eating plan, tomorrow... this was so good, but so sweet! The Sprite version I've used as a shower punch before... Ginger ale, Sprite, and sherbet. It was a hit, and really pretty.

  4. This sounds like the perfect ending to a day of gardening - icy cold and refreshing! Clean eating can wait another day.
