A Sonic favorite easily made at home! This sweet and tangy cherry limeade drink is a summer thirst quencher that everyone will love.
I’ll never forget the day I tried my first cherry limeade from Sonic. I had my two boys in the car and was craving a yummy drink. Sonic was really close and I pulled in. The gal working recommended the cherry limeade so I went for it and got the biggest one they had. My first sip was what I could easily describe as heavenly. Not only was the flavor fantastic, I was also really excited to have found a delicious drink that I could share with my kids.
This summer I decided to take my favorite drink and make it at home. And I’m happy to tell you that they are so easy to make and taste just like the goodness that is the original.
Cherry limeades are so much to serve at a family gathering or a party with friends. I made some for my oldest son (age 6) and his friends while they had a swimming party in the backyard. They loved it and thought the garnishes were pretty awesome.
- 8 glasses (about 9oz)
- 4 limes, cut into quarters
- 2 liter Sprite
- 1 (6oz) jar maraschino cherries
- 8 straws
- Fill each glass half full with ice. Squeeze a wedge of lime into each glass and drop the wedge in. Fill glasses with Sprite and add 2 Tbsp maraschino juice from the jar. Garnish with a lime wedge and 2-3 cherries. Serve with a straw.
Don’t let the summer pass you by without making this drink! It’s easy, it’s tasty, and it’s fun. I hope you love it as much as we do!
