Limeade Punch

I swore off making punch ten years ago when I made it for a bridal shower and it ended up looking like foamy dirty dish water. Not only was it a lot of work, it didn’t even taste good. But just like mushrooms and fish, I decided even punch deserved a second chance.

A month ago I was in charge of refreshments for a church activity and on the way to the event our president called and asked if I needed her to pick up ice for the punch. The what? I had already made dessert, but drinks had completely skipped my mind. I needed something easy so I immediately texted my sisters, Shelly and Susan, on my way to the grocery store for their easy limeade punch recipe. It’s a refreshing lime drink with a slight tart kick. People kept asking for the recipe and I was embarrassed to tell them it actually wasn’t from scratch and only had 2 ingredients. Work smart not hard, right?
You can add sliced limes or even frozen raspberries to give a little color. The best part is that you can whip up a batch in the middle of a party without missing a beat. You can even be daring and try the Cherry Limeade version. Oh how I wish we had a Sonic out here!
Just know that if you do use frozen raspberries after a while they leave a red glow. I think it’s pretty!

  • 1 12 ounce can frozen limeade concentrate
  • 1 2 liter bottle Sprite
  • frozen raspberries or sliced limes for garnish
  • ice
  1. Pour the frozen limeade concentrate in a large bowl and add the Sprite. I like my punch on the tart side so I add about 3/4 of a bottle of Sprite. Add ice, sliced limes, and frozen raspberries if desired.
  2. Got Sonic Fever? Turn it into cherry limeade by adding the juice of 1 (10 ounce) jar of maraschino cherries. Add an additional can of frozen limeade for some extra tartness and garnish with the reserved maraschino cherries.

Speak Your Mind



  1. I love Sonic’s Cherry Limeades, and can hardly wait for an opportunity to make this punch…or maybe I’ll make it for no special reason, it just sounds that good!

  2. I made Cherry Limeade for my bridal and baby girl shower. Very cute.. I add lime slices and cherries into the punch with it. For the baby shower I floated pink rubber duckies in the punch bowl. mMmmMmm.

  3. I’m such a big fan of punch! This sounds lovely. Great recipe!

  4. My mouth won’t stop watering! I love Sonic Cherry Limeades, they are fantastic. Now they have diet ch. lm. It is not quite as good, but the largest ch. lm is 464 calories! lol Thanks for sharing this easy recipe!


  5. I too have had a similar “punch folly” and this looks great. On the side….you DO NOT wish Sonic was near you. sure they’re great for every once and while but they’re expensive (for fast food) and ADDICTING!

  6. Wait… WHAT? No Sonic near you? That is the saddest thing I have heard all day! LOL! I love to go get Route 44 Sonic drinks (cherry limeade defiantly a favorite as well as vanilla coke and diet Dr. Pepper) during their daily happy hour!

    Oh and I always forget to make punch or drinks when I am hosting get together. Love the look of the raspberries in this!

  7. That looks perfect for a hot Summer day! Can’t wait to try it!


  8. Punch is my favorite part of any shower! I’m a big fan of the cherry limeade so I’m sure I’d love this ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Yummmm Sonic! That looks so good!

  10. LOL! I found you on I heart naptime! I’m your newest follower!

  11. I think this sounds delicious!

  12. This is exactly like my recipe for daquiri punch. Just add rum.

  13. I love Sonic’s limeade. They’ll add extra lime for free too! Extra pucker is always good.

  14. this looks so refreshing!

    you should try Wal-Mart’s brand of sparkling lemonade’s. They have a sparkling blueberry one that is so good (and zero cals)! they have a limeade one too.

  15. This will be perfect for a baby shower my friends and I are hosting in 2 weeks – thanks! It looks so pretty too!

  16. There’s no Sonic near me, but after working at one for 4 years through high school and college I’ve eaten enough sonic to last me for life, so I’m not that sad about it, especially since I know how they make the cherry-limade. Sprite, lemon juice, cherry syrup a lime wedge and a cherry. Can’t get much easier than that.

  17. My mom was talking about throwing me a baby shower and I mentioned this punch. She said, “how ’bout the one with sherbet” and I cringed and told her I’d send her the link to this. ha!

  18. This one is so smart and so easy to do… amazing !! i love the frozen rasberries

  19. Looks great! Do you need to thaw the limeade concentrate before you make the punch?

  20. I’d like to make an alcoholic version of this for a gathering – any idea what proportion of rum to add?

  21. Tommy in Idaho says:

    In our version we floated a half-gallon of lime sherbet in the limeade/Sprite mix. Spike with vodka if you want an adult beverage.

  22. Thank you for some other fantastic article.
    The place else could anyone get that type of info in such a perfect method
    of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I am on the search for such information.
