Refreshing Cherry Limeade Recipe
This Cherry Limeade Recipe is a refreshing drink all year long. This family-friendly drink is similar to the Sonic Cherry Limeade...so good!
Servings: 1 Drink
- 2 Maraschino Cherries 2-3 if you like more.
- 2 tbsp Maraschino cherry syrup Either purchase a bottle of Maraschino Syrup or use the reserved juice from the cherry jar. You will need 2-4 tbsp of juice for each drink.
- Half Lime ½ lime for each drink. Use in each drink and as a garnish.
- 1 can Sprite
Start by slicing your limes up into halves, then take each half and halve them again. Leaving you with 4 slices.
Your cherry limeade will start with placing a slice of lime at the bottom of your cup and 1, 2 or 3 cherries at the bottom. If you are a cherry lover, the more the better!
Fill your cup with as much ice as you would like, I find that crushed ice feels more like the iconic Sonic drink.
Then, open a can of Sprite and fill your cup. This is where you will add your cherry juice, and the amount will depend on the size of your cup. If you are using a smaller cup, start with 2 tbsp of maraschino cherry juice. If your cup is on the larger side, you may need 4 tbsp of juice. A quick stir and sip of your drink will let you know when you’ve reached the perfect amount.
Squeeze a slice of lime into the drink and carefully stir everything up. Garnish with a slice of lime and a couple of cherries.
