Cranberry Limeade with Frozen Cranberries

With our Grilled Southern PB&J Sandwiches, we made Cranberry Limeade. I really love anything with citrus, more specifically lemonade or limeade. I saw some gorgeous fresh cranberries at the grocery store, so I bought a bag of them to freeze and use them as ice cubes to keep our drinks cold while we were at the park all day. This beverage is tart, yet refreshing & sweet. Just perfect for a picnic out at the park!! Enjoy :)
