Howling Wolf

1 oz Absolut vodka (or your favorite vodka)
1/2 oz white creme de menthe
1 oz Blue Curacao liqueur
Sprite soda (or your favorite store brand)
maraschino cherry for garnish
ice cubes

Add the vodka, the creme de menthe and the blue curacao liqueur to a cocktail shaker with one or two ice cubes. Shake well. Add ice cubes to a highball glass until it is about 3/4 full of ice. Pour the drink into the glass then fill to the top with Sprite (save on calories by using diet Sprite). Garnish with a maraschino cherry on a cocktail pick and serve!  If you like, you can also drizzle a little bit of the cherry juice on top and do not stir.
