Cherry Limeade (1)

Summer is the perfect time to enjoy a cool refreshing Cherry Limeade without leaving your home. I don’t know about you but I always have maraschino cherries on hand and many times the jar is left full of juice, this is a great recipe to use up that cherry juice.

Cherry Limeade (2)

Here is what you need:

12 oz Sprite

1/4 lime + 1 slice

3 Tablespoons maraschino cherry juice (or to your liking)

Maraschino cherries


In a large glass add ice, sprite, cherry juice and squeeze the juice from 1/4 lime. Stir add a cherry and a slice of lime. You can also make a pitcher of this for parties it is perfect for the kids!


  1. Now this sounds refreshing for those really hot days-I like I can make it by the single glassful–of course I would have to buy some maraschino cherries and a lime and a bottle of diet sprite–but that would cause no hardship!!!!!

  2. I will have to remember this next time we make the chocolate covered cherry mice or fruit pizza which are the two recipes we use that have maraschino cherries. I always feel guilty throwing out the juice leftover in the jar. The kids would love this!

  3. Cool! thanks for sharing. I want that 🙂 looks refreshing.

  4. I have made these before and they are really good Thank you for the reminder.

  5. That sounds very tasty, really good to satisfy ones thirst during summer.

  6. yum I want to try this off to make some

  7. I always wanted to make my own drinks. Thanks for sharing this.

  8. That is very refreshing so right for this summer season.

  9. Oh I’d love to make it for one of the girls’ party here.

    That looks so good. I never thought about putting cherry juice in my sprite. I wonder if it would taste as good with diet sprite. I guess one bottle of regular couldn’t hurt 🙂

  11. I always buy the Minute Maid or Tropicana Cherry Limeade and never thought about doing it myself. Thanks for the recipe. This might actually taste better. 🙂

  12. Ooooh, DUH! I never thought to use the cherry juice haha. I have been using Cherry Grenadine and it’s just not as sweet (and fairly more expensive!) Great post. I loooooove Cherry Limeade!

  13. Very simple and easy. Sounds very refreshing. I bet my son would like this he is a fan of sprite. I on the other hand think its too sweet. I wonder if I could make it with something a little less sweet.

  14. I love Cherry Limeade. I get this at Sonic sometimes during their happy hour. Making it at home would be so much easier.

  15. I love being able to replicate these delicious recipes at home for a fraction of the price. It allows you to spend some quality time with your family and enjoy a delicious treat while saving money at the same time.

  17. Oooh this looks like it would taste really good. What a great idea for all that extra cherry juice. Now if we could find a simple recipe like this for strawberry lemonade, it’s my favorite. lol.

  20. This is so easy! Can’t wait to make these up for my daughter’s next play date with her friends. She will be very proud and I think her friends will be very impressed.
