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.

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.

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.
