Southern Blush Limeade

This simple refreshing drink is fast becoming one of my family's favorite for a hot day. It is a beautiful drink to serve and it really hits the spot when the outside temperatures soar! Enjoy.

3/4 cup Lime juice (I use the juice in the bottle, but you could use fresh squeezed)
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup maraschino cherry juice
2 liter Sprite
Maraschino cherries and lime or lemon slices for garnish

Mix above in a glass pitcher. Beautiful. You could do a low calorie version and use a sugar substitute like splenda for the sugar. If you do that, up the sugar substitute equivalent to one cup of sugar. Instead of using Sprite, use 2 liter of lime carbonated water. I don't use sugar substitutes but it is just a thought!

grace and peace,

This drink sounds lovely! And to think, all these years I've been throwing out that maraschino cherry juice! I've printed out this recipe and am eager to try it.
