SAN DIEGO, Calif. (CBS 8) - It's starting to warm up outside, and the warmer weather has inspired me to try a new drink recipe: cherry limeade.
I will be having a yard sale later this month and I wanted to offer cookies and lemonade, but then I thought why not try something different, and cherry limeade came to mind.
This can be made with sugar, or Splenda for those of you who can't have sugar. It can also be sweetened with agave syrup. If you do use agave syrup, just remember it is a lot sweeter than sugar so use it sparingly. This drink recipe is sure to become a new family favorite. Enjoy!
1 large jar maraschino cherries with stems
1 1/2 cups fresh lime juice
1 1/4 cup sugar*
2 liters water
1 liter club soda or tonic water
Mint leaves for garnish
Drain juice from cherries, reserve cherries and freeze both lime slices and cherries. Combine lime juice, maraschino cherry juice and sugar. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Add water, stir then add club soda or tonic water last and stir to combine. Place frozen cherries, lime slices and ice cubes in tall glasses, pour cherry limeade over frozen cherries, lime slices and ice cubes garnish with mint leaves and serve.
* If using Splenda, use only 1 cup.
* If using agave syrup, add after mixing the water, lime and cherry juices, water and club soda. Since it is twice as sweet as sugar you'll want to add agave syrup a little at a time, tasting as you go until desired sweetness is reached.
* For an adult beverage, pour 1 1/2 oz. good quality vodka in each glass over ice, cherries and limes before filling with cherry limeade. Stir and serve.
