Copycat Sonic Cherry Limeade

Sonic Cherry Limeade

I am obsessed with the Cherry Limeade you get from Sonic’s!! It started getting expensive driving 25 minutes to the closest Sonic just to get my favorite drink. I played around and came up with my own Cherry Limeade, which, taste just as good, if not better, than the one from Sonic! It is also super easy to make!

1.  Get you a good sized cup. I use mason jars because, well, I live in the south and they are drinking cups.

2. Get a big thing of Maraschino Cherries. Pour 3 TBS of the juice into your cup.

3. Take 2-3 packs, depending on how much of a lime taste you want, of True Lime and pour it into your cup. If you ca’t find True Lime, you can also squeeze in the juice of 1-2 limes, again, depending on how strong of a lime taste you want.

4. Mix all that together.

5. Put some ice cubes in your drink and fill it the rest of the way with Sprite. It will take almost a whole can. Mix it one more time.

6. Garnish with a few of the Maraschino Cherries and sip away.

This is the best refreshing drink after a hot summer day.

    I used to live near a Sonic, and I sure do miss the Cherry drinks. This sounds like a great summer addition to my drink list :) Thank you.

    My daughter makes several trip a week to get the cherry limeade drink, now we can make our own and probably a lot cheaper. She will probably prefer limes
