Cherry Vodka Limeade

Cherry Vodka Limeade


This became a favorite beverage to drink at my brother's house after taking care of our parents and their affairs all day when visited all of them in Georgia. It's light, refreshing, and super tasty. I even like to make it without the vodka sometimes. It's a little bit of work, but definitely worth the effort.

If you can get a hold of them and afford to buy them, I highly recommend using Luxardo Maraschino Cherries. They really are something special. Today I used a copycat version of those cherries, and it tastes fantastic. I'll get around to posting that recipe later.

  • 4-5 ounces lemon-lime soda (Sprite, 7-Up, etc.)

  • Add in the lime juice, vodka, and soda.
  • Add cherry syrup and cherries and stir gently.
  • Enjoy.
