Summer is here…the kids are home…it’s 2 p.m…you know what that means! It’s Sonic time! We love Sonic’s Happy Hour, but unfortunately the closest restaurant to us is about an hour away. So what’s the next best thing? Make our own Cherry Limeade that tastes just like Sonic’s!
This Cherry Limeade is very easy, the only tricky part was the cherry syrup. We ended up using cherry ice cream topping and just straining out the cherries to get just the syrup. The good part though, you only need 2 tablespoons per glass. And that and juicing the limes are the hardest part about putting these together. Even the kids can join in and you can make it a family experience just like enjoying it at Sonic in person.
I think this would make a great drink to serve for the Fourth of July as well, add some blue straws and you have a festive little drink!
