O M G !!!!!!!! this MIGHT be “to die for” refreshment. (makes my husband NUTS when I say that) but I am telling you, it is YUMMY !!!!!! my daughter went to Ottumwa last night to the movies and I had her bring me back a Sonic Cherry Limeade !!!!!!!! they are THAT good!!! then we all put our heads together and did our research trying to find the right recipe and make it BETTER to create them on our own.
1. We want to SAVE money, and have the ease of doing them at home at our convenience
2. The closest Sonic is 30 minutes away and I can only go to Ottumwa so many times in a week!!! 😮 people will start getting suspicious of what the heck I need to go there all the time for, and I can HARDLY justify the GAS money just for a beverage!! haha
3. And of course, it makes a perfect blog post for the HOT HOT (and humid) 90 degree day we had today!!!
ok. Here goes:
fill a tall glass 2/3 full of ice (of course, we use crushed) to get the full effect. 🙂
add 2 Tbsp Grenadine
add the juice of 1/2 lime (squeeze really well) and add the actual lime TO the drink.
Top off with COLD Sprite (we used Sprite Zero)
It will fizz really good, and make you EXTRA thirsty!! You can even HEAR it bubbling!!!
My son and I just came home from a late night walk with our poodle and tried one out. Then we had to make ANOTHER one!!! and I will do a third one when my daughter gets off work. She will be impressed as we have all come to LOVE these!!!!!!!!!
The perfect summertime drink. (and now on the cheap!!!) yeah!!
Try one, and be SURE to let me know how much you love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
