The dog days of summer are dragging on . . . and my 36-week pregnant ankles (that look more like elephant legs) are proof. There is a local drive-thru restaurant called Sonic that has “Happy Hour” from 2-4 pm each day and all drinks are half-price. One of my favorite drinks is their Cherry Limeade. I have spent WAY more than I should on their yummy drinks, but on a hot summer day it just sounds so good!
I found this recipe to make your own Sonic Cherry Limeade at home and I have now made it many, many times. I just tell my husband, “Think of all the money I am saving since I just make it myself now!”
Mix all ingredients together and serve immediately. You can also throw in some maraschino cherries if you would like. For a slushier drink, use limeade concentrate that is completely frozen (mine was partially thawed in the picture and that is why it isn't slushy).
Add ice as wanted . . . mine melted very fast because it was so hot outside!
