Sometimes I feel like limeade gets a little left out. It feels so rarely talked about and seems to always be in the shadows of the uber popular lemonade. Between lemonade stands, lemonade trucks, frozen lemonade and lemonade in almost every restaurant, it feels like lemonade is everywhere you turn.
Ah, but that’s what makes limeade even better. It’s uniqueness. Its rarity. And of course, its tart yet delicious taste. Add a hit of cherry flavor and well, now you’re really on to something.
And while you are at it, why not add a little something extra to give your chery limeade a boozy edge. Vodka lemonade doesnt have anything on this cherry limeade cocktail!
Step on the wild side and make this easy and refreshing cherry limeade cocktail for when you want to stand out from the crowd, do something different or just because!

About the Ingredients
Vodka is a distilled alcoholic drink that is clear in color. It typically does not have much flavor and therefore is a very popular alcohol to infuse.
Grenadine is one of the heaviest drink mix-ins with a red color and a cherry flavor.
Lime Juice is a citrus fruit with a tart taste and bright green color.
Club Soda is a carbonated water with added minerals to create a mildly salty taste.
