Need a fruity, refreshing drink to ward off the warm temperatures? Then try our easy cherry limeade recipe. It’s sweet, tart, bubbly, and so delicious!

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.

Best of all, it only takes about five (5) minutes to prepare. Let’s get mixing!

Easy Cherry Limeade Recipe Instructions:

First, juice the limes and measure out the soda.

As you can see from the photo we chose a large glass jar. However, you can use a pitcher if you like.

The lime soda has been prepped in a tall jar.

Next, in a large pitcher or glass container, combine the soda, syrup, and lime juice.

Now, if you don’t have cherry syrup on hand, take a look at the tips below for a possible substitution.

Then, carefully combine the soda, cherry syrup, and lime juice.

I say, carefully, because, the soda may fizz up as you add the other ingredients.

Last, portion out the cherry limeade into four (4) twelve (12) ounce glasses.

We recommend using ice, but if you’d rather seal the limeade and let it chill in your fridge, that work’s too.

That’s it, your cherry limeade recipe is done. Kim and I hope you enjoy this fizzy bubbly drink as much as we did and wish you all the best 🙂

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 (2) 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.
