Here Comes the Lime

  • 3 cups Prairie Organic Vodka
  • 2 cups simple syrup (2 cups sugar and 2 cups water, cooked until sugar has dissolved. Allow to cool.)
  • 8 cups (two liters) cold seltzer water
  • 3 cups lime juice
  • 2 limes, sliced
  • Ice, as needed
  • 6 cups fresh or frozen sweet black cherries (optional)

The Display: While the drinks may speak for themselves, below are a few ideas for pulling together a beautiful table to present your tasty drinks.

Display your cocktails in glass beverage dispensers, complete with a label so guests can see what they are getting before they sip. To make beverage pouring as simple as possible, place your dispensers on top of simple glass cake stands to elevate your drinks without taking away from their colorful splendor. Add to the DIY feel of your table by lining it with colorful Mason jars and striped paper straws for the guests to drink from.
