This is a delicious drink - very tasty and thirst-quenching but the recipe needed some adjustment. When scaled to one serving only 2T rum was called for in a pint of soda. I just used the measurements listed as a guideline. What I did: a large water glass 4 ice cubes a shot of rum 2T grenadine 1/4 lime juiced; and then filled the glass with lime soda. You could not taste the rum at all and it was very delicious. Read More

This is a nice summery drink but as written it is waaaay too sweet (and I like sweet drinks!). I recommend halving the amount of grenadine. Read More

Yum! Made this over the weekend of the Fourth and used Sierra Mist soda which would be the only thing I change for the next time - that soda tends to taste flat sooner than most. I actually took the cherries and marinated them in vodka prior to garnishing the drinks with them. Everyone got a nice POP once they were to the end of the drink. I also halved the amount of grenadine per the advice of others. Read More

Yep - this was tasty. I love cherry limeades...especially from Sonic but there's no Sonic within a reasonable distance around here so I always make my own. I juiced 2 limes since I like a sour taste and went easy on the rum...I didn't want to see double! I added some of the cherry juice which really sent this over the top. Will keep this drink in mind for summer. Thanks a bunch:) Read More

This tastes EXACTLY like a cherry limeade ( & I'm an expert on the subject!) I did cut wayyy back on the grenadine...I don't think it needs more than an ounce & a half. Read More

This was just okay. I cut back on the grenadine a little but it was still sickeningly sweet. It was drinkable but I don't think I'll make it again. It reminded me of fizzy cough syrup. Read More
