Recipe is tasty, but quite tart. The trick is to fill your cup completely with ice, then add the cheery limeade. As the ice melts it becomes less and less tart. Read More

It's much easier and tastes better to serve sprite with fresh lime wedges squeezed in and grenadine mixed in. Grenadine is the red syrup that is used to make cherry cokes or shirley temples. You can find it in grocery or liquor stores. If you want to you can garnish with cherries and add a little cherry juice as well. Read More

This reminds me of the cherry limeade's I just have to have from Sonic only better because I don't add as much ice and I can add two cherries. I mixed this together and let it sit for about 30 minutes prior to serving...served it with tacos...yummy! Read More

Very tart and refreshing. Was too sweet / tart for multiple glasses on hot summer day. Next time I'll add the suggested 2nd bottle of lemon lime soda to make it more drinkable when you want more than one glass. Everyone at the picnic loved this. Read More

Everyone RAVED about this beverage at a recent family gathering. The original recipe is very tart. I didn't have an extra bottle of lime-soda so I used a 12oz can of Welch's Grape-Apple-Cherry Cocktail to the mixture. Read More

When we were on vacation we had these at Sonic. They were great! We don't have sonic here up North so this was a real treat. I used Sierra Mist for the lemon-lime soda but will try Sprite next time. The Sierra Mist changed the flavor I think. This was a real hit with the family! Read More

I loved the color as well as the taste of this. Thought my kids would go nuts over it but they didn't care for it. Said it was way too sweet. Another said way too tart. That's what I liked about it. Plan to serve this at a party. Read More
