The cherry lime rickey is a flavor-popping bubbly mocktail or cocktail! Serve it non-alcoholic, or add gin for a spiked variation.


  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) cherry cocktail syrup*
  • For a cocktail: 2 ounces gin (optional)
  • 4 ounces (1/2 cup) soda water
  • 3 Maraschino cherries
  • For serving: Ice (try clear ice), lime wedges


  1. Add the lime juice, optional gin, and syrup to highball glass and stir.
  2. Fill with ice and top with sparkling water. Garnish with lime wedges and Maraschino cherries.


*You can find cherry syrup at most liquor stores, grocery stores by the alcohol, or online. We found a syrup that was grenadine with both natural cherry and pomegranate flavors, so that is also an option. (Grenadine is typically 100% pomegranate, so it’s not a natural substitute.)
