Diet Cherry Limeaide Sonic Style


I am sooooo addicted to the Diet Cherry Limeaide at Sonic. I have to stop and get one anytime I am anywhere in the vicinity of my local Sonic. I have tried to figure out how to make them at home before, but it was never quite the same.

I was busy checking out their website the other day and looking up the nutrition information on some of the items I will never let pass thru my lips, and saw the nutrition information for my favorite beverage, it gave every single ingredient and there are only three! There is no sugar, no carbs and no calories!

Whooo the hell Whoooooooo! Let me tell you the three secret ingredients!

Diet Cherry Syrup (I am a fan of the DaVinci line of syrups)
Sprite Zero
Limes, halved
Lots of crushed ice (luckily my ice maker has that option, cubes would work just fine)

Add a bit of your syrup to your glass with ice in it already, top with some Sprite and squeeze a lime into it, add the lime to the glass when you are done squeezing (it adds more flavor), stir and enter heaven!

TA DA that's it, I like a bit less syrup in mine, you can mix to your favorite taste or use different flavored syrups! Give it a try, it is the most thirst quenching drink I have ever had!

That is my favorite!! I also add marischino cherries...could eat a jar in a sitting....lol. I can't find the diet (or regular) cherry syrup around here, though.

Hi! Popped over from a link on Krystal's Recipes of a Cheapskate blog to visit. I keep seeing the commercials for these and have been wondering what all they put in theme and there your recipe was!! Sounds so refreshing. I'm with Katherine - vodka or rum would be a good enhancer, should one want to imbibe!!
