Cherry Limeade Recipe@The Seven Year Cottage

With temperatures outside soaring…

An ice-cold glass of sparkling cherry limeade is sure to refresh!

Cherry Limeade Recipe

  • 4 Persian limes
  • 1 1/4 c. cherry juice, found on juice aisle (chilled)
  • 5 1/2 c. lemon-lime soda (chilled)
  • 1 small jar maraschino cherries w/stems

Cut three limes in half.  Using a reamer, squeeze juice into a pitcher.  Slice the fourth lime and set aside.

Add cherry juice, soda, and two tablespoons maraschino cherry liquid to the lime juice.  Stir slowly until well blended.

Pour over ice, then garnish with reserved lime slices and cherries.

Serve immediately and enjoy!

*Yields 4-6 servings.

    I love that the couple tablespoons of maraschino cherry juice adds enough sweetness to it to balance out the lime juice. The drink looks great and I can’t wait to try the recipe!

  2. Mmm! This looks delicious! And your picture is incredible too. I don’t know how many times I’ve gone to Sonic during happy hour to get this exact same drink. Thanks for posting this recipe. Now I’ll save gas and a couple extra bucks ;) I found you from Someday Crafts!
