cherry limeade

I had a hankering for a Cherry Limeade but didn’t want to go out in the awful heat of Oklahoma.  I had 7up and cherries and lime. I threw them together and made my own. There is not really a recipe for this. I just added enough lime juice and maraschino cherry juice to make it pink. Pour it over ice and serve with a sliver of lime and cherries. I used the leftovers to make Cherry Limeade popsicles for the kids. Enjoy.

Cherry Limeade

Punky Purls original


3 cans of 7 up or sprite

10 Maraschino Cherries with juice

splash of lime juice, fresh or concentrate



Pour 7up or sprite into a pitcher. Squirt your lime juice in if using concentrate or squeeze a fresh lime into soda. Pour some maraschino cherry juice into the pitcher, just enough to make it pink. Taste. Adjust flavor as needed.

Pour over ice and serve with a sliver of lime and Maraschino cherries.

*Some of my friends and family said this would be awesome if you spiked it with some vodka….I agree, it would be mighty tasty ;)*

I used the leftovers to make popsicles. Pour mixture into popsicle molds add a cherry and lime sliver into the mold and freeze for 4 hours or overnight.
