Sonic Copy Cat Cherry Limeade

This recipe is as easy as 1,2,3. Or better yet, cherries, limes, and sprite! When I was a kid, this was my go to drink at the Sonic Drive in. It’s the perfect drink on a hot summer’s day! Especially when lounging around at the pool 😀


I love how pretty it looks when you use real, fresh cherries instead of the canned ones!

This is all you’ll need! Just good ole lemon-lime soda, cherries, limes, and Maraschino cherry juice!

You start by adding crushed ice (or Sonic’s signature ice if you can get your hands on it!), cherries and a squeezed lime wedge.

Then pour in your lemon – lime soda

Pour in the cherry juice, stir, and voila! A tasty summertime drink right at home!


Ingredients (for one serving):

  • 8 oz lemon-lime soda
  • 2-3 cherries
  • 2 lime wedges
  • Crushed ice (or Sonic ice)
  • 1 Tbsp Maraschino Syrup


  1. Squeeze one lime wedge into your glass and drop the lime in. Add 2-3 cherries
  2. Next, add ice and soda
  3. Add 1 Tbsp of Maraschino Syrup (cherry juice!) and squeeze the last half of the lime on top.
