What I’m listening to: A Thousand Years, Christina Perri (slightly obsessed with this song)
Pastor Alaska and I used to share Strawberry Limeades from the Sonic Drive-Ins in California. It was a refreshing treat that both of us thoroughly enjoyed. When the drink was gone, we’d remove the lid and fish out the chunks of strawberries from the ice with our straws.
I had several cute, juicy little key limes leftover from when I made the popular Key Lime Cake with ombre frosting last week and I didn’t want them to go to waste. I decided to make my own homemade Strawberry Key Limeades. The key lime elevates this drink to something even better than the original. Key limes, for me, have a hint of vanilla paired with bright acidity. We were thrilled with our homemade version (and so was our frequent taste-tester, Andy the Intern). Rather than using up our leftover limes, we may have just invented an excuse to have to keep buying more instead. Oh darn.
