Cherry Limeade

Look out Sonic - I've made my own Cherry Limeade!

Since we are officially in the "hot" season, I thought I'd share my new fave -  Cherry Limeade!
The ingredients are oh, so simple...

6 oz jar of Maraschino cherries
6 oz. can frozen limeade, thawed and undiluted
1 cup water
2 cups lime flavored drink or sparkling water (I used diet Sierra Mist)
Use 1/3 cup of the juice from the Maraschino cherries; set aside 8 cherries (reserve the remaining cherries for another use - or drink! 
Combine the 1/3 cup cherry juice with the limeade concentrate in a pitcher. 
Add the 1 cup water.  Chill thoroughly
Add the lime, lemon-lime, or sparkling water just before serving.
Garnish with cherries. 
You can also garnish with lime slices too.
