It’s hard to believe that combining just three ingredients can result in such a wildly delicious drink. Grab some cranberry juice cocktail, Sprite and limes and you have the makings of this Cranberry Limeade. A drink that will be a hit at your holiday party or any time of the year.
Adding fruit to a sparkling beverage is one of the easiest and quickest ways to dress up a drink to serve at a party or holiday gathering and this drink is no exception. Combining the lime with the cranberries, was quite possibly the quintessential fall berry was genius. And there’s no need to spend time making this ahead of the party.
It really is just what some refer to as a bar mix, a 12 ounce can of Sprite poured over ice with a squeeze of lime and top it off with a couple ounces of cranberry juice cocktail. I suppose you could even add a shot of liquor to the mix for the adults but we’ll keep it family friendly here and leave that out this time.
Now I hear that Sonic Drive-In has the same drink so you might say that this is a Copy-Cat of that recipe but since I’ve not ever worked there I’ll leave that determination up to someone else.
I just know this is simple and I wanted to share this Cranberry Limeade Recipe with you in case you’re still looking for something festive to make for a Holiday Party or maybe even to serve with Christmas Brunch.
