Servings 10


  • 1 bottle lemon-lime flavored soft drink such as 7-up or Sprite 2 litres
  • Juice from 1 10 oz jar of maraschino cherries
  • 1 Lime


  • Empty the concentrated limeade into a large pitcher. Mix in the soft drink, and cherry juice, and the juice from the lime.
  • Chill, serve on ice garnished with lime slices and a few maraschino cherries.


For extra tart, add another can (or portion thereof) of concentrated limeade to taste. Needs to be served immediately because of the carbonation. Additional flavour / colouring can be achieved with a small amount of grenadine.
