Cherry-Lime Rickey: My kids LOVE the non-alcoholic version of these, and the awesome red color makes them festive for many holiday settings: Memorial Day/4th of July, Christmas/New Years, Valentine's Day, etc. For the adult version this recipe calls for gin, hmm . . . I think gin's flavor profile might fight with the other flavors so I'd go with vodka if I was gonna spike this classically non-alcoholic drink.
