Cherry Limeade

I try to make a habit of not drinking soda and to mainly drink water and on occasion tea or lemonade.  One day I saw a neat recipe on The Cooking Photographer for Radioactive Cherry Limeade.  I never took chemistry in high school or college and didn’t want to make a huge mess, so I played it safe and made regular Cherry Limeade instead.

What you need: 

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • Small pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 10-15 maraschino cherries, no juice
  • 2 tablespoons grenadine
  • 3 to 5 cups cold water, to taste
  • Maraschino cherries & lime slices for garnish
