Thirsty Thursday - Cherrrrry Limeaide!
Why? My guess is because Sonic makes theirs, yeah using some canned ingredients, but they mix it fresh. And that makes the difference. I was combing through some recipes and found an old family favorite, which tastes almost exactly like the mix from Sonic.
So, it's a Thirsty Thursday ~ Drink Edition today!
What you need:
12 oz can of Sprite - do NOT sub 7-up or any other brand. Sprite or nothing!
3 lime wedges
1/4 cup Cherry juice (I like Juicy Juice, but choose your fave)
1 cherry (this is optional, the drink will taste good without it)
Crushed Ice, to taste
I like crushed ice and I like it a lot...so, I fill my glass just over half-way with ice, then pour the Sprite in. Add the lime wedges and then add in the Cherry juice. Toss the cherry into the top. For a little extra lime-kapow, I will squeeze one of the limes rather than just plopping it in. Drink up and feel the refreshment! The above makes 1 16 oz drink.
