Cherry Limeade Slushies | Drink Recipe


i would say my all-time favorite drink is a Cherry Limeade…my boys and hubby LOVE Cherry Limeades too. but it seems that we don’t get to drink them very often….we only get them at restaurants. but i have been craving them bad during this hot and humid weather we’ve been having. so, i thought that it was time for me to learn to make them myself.

wow…who knew they were so easy to make. i even made them slushy style, which was wonderful. this is a quick and easy drink recipe goes well with any type of summer barbecue dish, and is especially refreshing on a hot summer day. they are a crowd pleaser for all ages….and i highly suggest you make them when company comes over for dinner.

to make a Cherry Limeade Slushie, all you need is lime juice, Sweet’N Low, ice and water, blend it in the blender, then add grenadine.  i love, love, love maraschino cherries, and the lime is the perfect compliment to them to cut down the sweetness.  it can be adjusted if you want your drink sweeter, more limey or more cherry.
