Cherry Limeade Cocktail

Cherry limeade cocktail – a little bit sweet, a little bit tart, and lots of fun to sip and enjoy.

If you’re looking for a sweet fizzy drink that makes a good mocktail, but can easily be transformed into a cocktail –because we like to spike things around here, then this is it! Drink responsibly!

Enjoy this drink during the warmer months or make it your signature Valentine’s Day or holiday cocktail because of the fun and festive colors.


  • Maraschino Cherries  – duh! We need cherries of course – and these jarred cherries are great because they are already sweetened and the thick sugary syrup adds to the flavor and the color. 
  • Limes – for color and to offset the sweetness of the cherry
  • Lemon lime soda – any brand will do, to give our drink a lemony flavor and a little fizz. Tonic is also a great option.
  • Spirit – I’m a vodka girl, but this would be good with rum or even gin.
