1 ¼cupgranulated sugar
1 ¼cupfresh lime juice
116 oz jar maraschino cherries (juice included, without stems)
2literlemon-lime sodaI used Sprite
1/2cupcherry juicetart or regular.
In a small saucepan add lime juice and sugar over low heat.
Stir until sugar has melted and the mixture is syrupy.
Remove from heat and allow mixture to cool.
Pour into a pitcher.
Add cherries, soda and cherry juice.
Stir and serve over ice.
Garnish with lime and mint if desired.
The cherry flavor gets bolder as this drink sits so if you are making this for a party mix together the cherries, cherry juice, and lime syrup and let it sit overnight. Add the soda when you are ready to serve to keep it bubbly! Although I have mixed everything up the night before and it was still bubbly the next day.
