Spiked Strawberry Limeade by JavaCupcake.com

Happy Father’s Day!  Today is a beautifully sunny, warm day in Bavaria and our backyard is the perfect place to spend the afternoon!  My 15 month old baby boy running around in his diaper, my teenage daughter laying on a towel getting a tan and my husband and I sitting in the deck chairs sipping a cocktail.  Seriously, perfect.

I’m not one to make fruity, mixed drinks on a Sunday afternoon… but on our recent trip to Berlin, I found strawberry lime liquor at the Vom Fass…. made with fresh berries and limes.  I thought combo this had great potential to make a super duper delicious drink…. and boy was I right!   This Spiked Strawberry Limeade is refreshing, tart and so yum!

I made a bit pitcher of it and we enjoyed it all afternoon!  I even made a glass for my daughter without the alcohol and it was still super delicious!

Enjoy!
