This Sparkling Vietnamese Limeade is a light-citrus bubbly beverage perfect for sipping on a warm summers day.
If you are looking for a refreshing family-friendly drink this recipe for Sparkling Vietnamese Limeade is the ticket. It’s sweet with a hint of lime and the sparkling water is what adds an additional pop to the recipe. So incredibly refreshing on hot summer day. My kids like drinking this with out the “bubbles” so that can totally be optional if you aren’t a fan of carbonated soda. I love how versatile this drink is, too!

This looks tasty! 🙂 AND would make a great cocktail base!!
Just kidding, But per directions “Fill 4 glasses with ice and rim with salt.” Wouldn’t it be easier to “Rim the glasses with salt then fill with ice?”
