Description

Here’s a fresh spin on cherry limeade! Make this crowd pleasing drink by the glass, and you can adjust flavors to taste.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3/4 cup homemade limeade* (or 1 lime and 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar)
  • 1 tablespoon maraschino juice (from a jar of maraschino cherries)
  • 2 tablespoons soda water (or lemon lime soda like Sprite), to taste
  • Fresh mint, for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Make the pitcher of homemade limeade. (Or for a single serving, squeeze 2 tablespoons lime juice into a glass. Add 1 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar and 1 1/2 tablespoons warm water and stir until it dissolves. Pour in 3/4 cup cold water.)
  2. Pour the maraschino juice into the limeade. Top off with soda water or soda. For a more classic sweeter version, double the maraschino juice and top off with a little more soda, to taste.

Notes

*1 recipe homemade limeade makes 8 to 9 cups or enough for about 12 servings of cherry limeade. You can also make an entire pitcher with 1 recipe limeade and 3/4 cup maraschino juice.
