TAKE A SIP: NOT-SO KIDDIE COCKTAIL

Today's post is the easiest- but sometimes the simplest are the best, ya know?

I grew up loving Kiddie Cocktails- some of my favorite memories of my grandpa were hanging out with him at the country club drinking ENDLESS kiddie cocktails. I mean endless. Grandparents are great at spoiling their grandkids, right?
What you need to make it happen:
-  1/2 ounce grenadine
- 1.5 ounces cherry vodka
- Sprite
- Maraschino cherries

How to Make it Happen:
Um, put the grenadine. vodka, and sprite in a cup. Garnish with cherries. Boom. 

If you like it extra sweet, add more grenadine. You can never go wrong with grenadine!

I don't even think maraschino cherries are real food- but I don't care. Damn they're good.

Do you have a go-to easy cocktail?
I know, you can laugh at kiddie cocktails- but if you haven't had one in the last 20 years...give one another try!
