I worked at Sonic for almost a year. For one can, two wedges should be enough. I also advise using grenadine (cherry syrup) instead. The juice is a little thin.
I used this recipe but I couldnt find cherry snow cone syrup so I used grenadine. That worked good and I threw in a few cherries in the cup. I also tried it with the Minute Made Cherry Limeade juice w/sprite and tweeked it with lime wedge and a cherry. That was the closest I got to the Sonic version. It was good and I loved it.
I live 30 miles from a Sonic and was really wanting a Cherry Limeade to drink. So I thought I would try making one, probably should of looked at the internet first, but I didn't. I really like my own recipe that I made up. Take 1 package of lemonade (Walmart brand) and a 1/2 package of Cherry drink mix and a tablespoon of Real Lime and put into a 2 quart pitcher. Fill 16 oz glass full of ice pour into a Ninja kitchen machine or nutribullet and add the drink mix to make your frozen drink. I tried this on the grandkids and they really enjoyed it without the soda drink.
Here, drink some more. I feel it, too...it's a jungle out there.
Really, really good!! Will make often this summer.
If you're looking for the sonic cherry limeade, this is definitely not it. It taste horrible. The balance isn't even good. The juice taste like what a 2 year old would drink and just makes the sprite taste watered down. Definitely go with cherry syrup for snow cones. We used that at Chilis when I worked there to make Shirley Temples.
It's nasty! It doesn't taste like limeade, but does taste like Sprite with a lime wedge and cherry juice. The whole limeade thing is only about limes, water, and sugar, rather than a soft drink with added flavors.
I love sonic, and this is a hit. Thanks for the refreshing change from lemonade!!
I have not had a cherry limeade from Sonic's yet but the recipe sounded very refreshing. When my DD was little I would add maraschino cherry juice to her Sprite or 7UP with a few cherries on a toothpick added and called it a Shirley Temple. This is much better and I love the lime flavor! I used 1 1/2 cups of Sprite and a bit more than 1/4 cup of cherry Juicy Juice with one slice of lime. If you really enjoy limes I would go ahead and add 3 wedges but for me one slice worked great. I will be making this a lot! Thank you Danny Beason for posting this recipe. Made and reviewed for the Secret Ingredient Tag Game.
