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 I 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.

Cherry Vodka Limeade
Adapted from

  • ice
  • 1-2 ounces fresh squeezed lime juice (depending on how tart you like it)
  • 2 ounces cherry Vodka (Smirnoff is my fav)
  • 4-5 ounces lemon-lime soda (Sprite, 7-Up, etc.)
  • 1/2 ounce Maraschino cherry syrup (Luxardo is the best, Reese's Maraschino Syrup is what I can afford)
  • 1-2 Maraschino cherries
  • Fill a 16 ounce glass with ice.
  • Add in the lime juice, vodka, and soda.
  • Add cherry syrup and cherries and stir gently.
  • Enjoy.
