Sonic Drive In is a popular place near our home that has the best Cherry Limeade drinks. They have a daily happy hour (which I think is more like 2 hours) where you can get drinks at half off.
But knowing we can make our own copycat version has saved us a lot of time, travel, and money.
Our copycat recipe tastes so much like the real deal. We’ve served it to friends and they couldn’t believe we made it ourselves.
If you’ve never had a cherry limeade, it’s a combination of sweet and sour that goes together with every sip. It’s very similar to a cherry lemonade, but has a kick of citrus added to it.
Our copycat cherry limeade is our most requested drink on a hot day. It’s so refreshing. It’s that perfect summer drink as you relax on your front porch in the evening.

We have perfected this recipe to accomplish that goal. We think you’ll agree.
- Start by stirring together the frozen limeade concentrate, lemon lime soda, and cherry juice from the maraschino cherry jar. We like to use Sprite for the lemon lime soda. Store brand lemon lime soda works great too.
