Fantabulous! This is a refreshing, wonderful drink that made a hard day on the farm great to come home to. Easy to put together and the taste outstanding. The sugar cube was such a nice touch. I am always trying to find little treats to sneak in a sugar cube and this was it! Thank you so much Engrossed! Made for *ZWT4* June 2008.

Made these for the kids yesterday to accompany us as dad and me drank our more adult caipirinhas. Used sprite instead of ginger ale as I wasn't able to find any. The kids really liked these.
