Tipsy Cherry Limeade

Tipsy Cherry Limeade

Cherry limeade is pretty high up on the ‘nostalgic’ list for me. The only place I’ve ever really ordered one is at the old Sonic Drive-In, but that sweet cherry limeade still makes me think of a classic soda shop. Maybe it’s the car-hops scooting around on skates or maybe it’s the fact that nearly 20 years have rolled by since the last time I actually had one. Whatever it may be, the nostalgia is strong with this one.

We’re gonna make a big-girl drink out of this old favorite by throwing in some light rum. A hefty splash of tart cherry juice adds a tangy sweetness. (Cheribundi makes a super tasty, lighter version of its tart cherry juice, if you’re watching calories and sugar). Of course, no Cherry Limeade would be complete without a hefty squeeze of lime and a top off with lemon-lime soda to balance it all out.

Honestly, I still love this one without the booze. The older I get, the harder it is for me to bounce back from a night of drinking (where my 30-somethings at??), so mocktails have been making me a happy, non-hungover camper lately!

If you’re not a drinker, try a glass of ice with a little cherry juice and a squeeze of lime. SO. SO. GOOD.

If you are a drinker, go ahead and fill a highball glass with ice. Add 1.5 oz. of light rum (or the clear spirit of choice), 2.5 oz. of tart cherry juice and the juice from 1/4 of a lime. Top it off with lemon-lime soda and give the drink a good stir with a cocktail spoon. For a little more pizazz, garnish the glass with some cherries & a wedge of lime. Cheers!
