Every party needs a colorful nonalcoholic drink that makes nonimbibers feel included in the fun. Inspired by the Bacardi Cocktail (a daiquiri with grenadine), this one has all the refreshment of that classic drink -- without the rum.


2tablespoons lime juice
2teaspoons grenadine
1teaspoon sugar
1/4teaspoon vanilla extract
-- Ice cubes
1/2cup club soda
-- Mint leaves for garnish


  1. For each serving, combine lime juice, grenadine, sugar and vanilla in a small glass. Stir to partially dissolve sugar. Fill glass with ice; pour in club soda. Stir, garnish with mint, and serve immediately.
