This Cherry Limeade Slush is a copycat recipe of your favorite Sonic Drive-In Drink. This drink recipe has the perfect balance of cherry and lime flavor. It is a perfect way to cool down and relax on a hot summer’s day.
I am totally enjoying the lazy days of summer. I really can’t say they have been lazy since we are in the thick of summer farm life. But I like to think of summer as a laid back time for most people. In a few short weeks, chaos will ensue. The kids will be heading back to school, their social and activity schedules will be packed and things will be downright crazy as we head into the fall season on our farm. Yes, soon, the season of fall will smack all of us in the head. Forcing us to face the reality that the lazy days of summer are behind us and the frantic fall days are here.
But fall isn’t here yet and I am totally getting way ahead of myself….so let’s enjoy all that summer has to offer.
That includes sipping this refreshing Cherry Limeade Slush poolside. I am savoring EVERY. LAST. SECOND. OF. SUMMER!!!!
If you recall, slushy drinks are my weakness that I enjoy any time of the year, not just during the summer. This recipe is my copycat version of the Sonic Drive-In Cherry Limeade. Five simple ingredients are all it takes to whip up this delicious Cherry Limeade Slush. Another weakness of mine is cherry flavored ANYTHING! Sweet maraschino cherries add the perfect cherry flavor to this drink. I am slightly obsessed with those too. Once I opened the jar, I kept popping them in my mouth – one after the other. I had to make sure I saved enough for the drink.
Cherry Limeade Slush Tips & Directions:
Tip 1: If you can’t find frozen lime concentrate, you can use fresh lime juice instead. I would just add a little more cherry juice for some extra sweetness.
Tip 2: You can add everything at once to the blender. It is super simple to make. If you like your slush extra slushie, then just add more ice before blending.
Tip 3: It’s all about the garnish. Add lime slices and cherries for a pretty garnish.
