Your barbeque may not need a new twist but here is something you can serve to drink that beats the usual punch and soda pop routine, it’s Ginger Limeade.

  4. add 1/2 quart of lime juice
  5. add 2 quarts of cool water and mix well and allow to cool

Just a regular guy who loves to barbeque. Married father of two. I developed a love for grilling as a child watching my dad grill. My love for BBQ, using wood and the "low & slow" method came after I purchased my first horizontal smoker in my 20's.
