Oh man, Summer is about a month away and I am excited. It’s the time of the year when I feel my best. Warm temperatures along with plenty of sunlight. I can’t really think of a better time of the year.

With that being said, those temps can be get a little too warm from time to time. On days like that, I tend to reach for a cool refreshing drink.

So, in preparation for the hotter months, we’re sharing our cherry limeade recipe. The beverage is bubbly, crisp, and oh so satisfying on a hot day. The limeade strikes a good balance between sweet and tart.

How to make a cherry limeade:

  • In a large pitcher or glass container, combine the soda, syrup, and lime juice.
  • Carefully combine the soda, cherry syrup, and lime juice. I say, carefully, because, the soda may fizz up as you add the other ingredients.
  • Serve the cherry limeade over ice and garnish with fresh lime wedges and maraschino cherries.
  • Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Easy Cherry Limeade Recipe Tips:

  • If you don’t have cherry syrup handy, you can try substituting grenadine or even Maraschino cherry juice.
  • Should you decide to use lime concentrate, start by only using two tablespoons. Then, taste test the cherry limeade soda before adding more.
  • For another unique twist on the recipe, consider substituting ginger ale for the lemon lime soda.
