Strawberry Limeades

Raise your hand if you love Sonic’s Cherry Limeades?!?! I do!! They are the best thing to quench a thirst after a long day laying out in the sun!:) These are a great addition to any party and your guests will love them! I opted to make Strawberry instead of Cherry because I love strawberries more and they were so delicious!! Head over to Cookin’ Cowgirl for how to make this into popsicles!!
Homemade Strawberry Limeade

Juice of 4 Limes (approx. 1/2 cup)
3/4 cup fresh strawberries, hulled
3-4 tbsp. grenadine
2 liter bottle lemon lime soda (I used sprite zero)
Lime zest, optional

Cut tops off of strawberries and cut each berry in half, then add to food processor or blender until chopped very fine. Add chopped strawberries & 3 tbsp. grenadine to a large pitcher, stir to combine. Taste with a small spoon, add another tbsp. grenadine if necessary. Add in lime juice, then the soda. Stir to combine.
