Homemade cherry limeade

Every Saturday our DVR records The Pioneer Woman's cooking show and when Kenzie and I are both available we snuggle down on the couch and watch it.  This week Ree made some cherry limeade that looked so delicious and we just happened to have all the ingredients on hand.  So what's a girl to do? Kenzie and I jumped up off the couch and made it.

It's so much better then Sonic. I'm sure there are skeptics out there but it's true!

 Pioneer woman drinks out of jars so according to Kenzie we had to also.

Cherry Limeade 


  • 2-liter bottle lemon-lime soda
  • 1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • One 10-ounce jar maraschino cherries, with juice
  • Thin lime slices


Chill all ingredients before mixing.
When cold, combine the lemon-lime soda, lime juice, sugar, cherries with their juice
 and lime slices in a large pitcher and stir. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Serve with a ladle, getting cherries and limes in each serving.
