Feeding the Craving at Home

If you think this post is going to be about Chick-fil-A
STOP  reading now or you're going to be very disappointed. Today I'm talking about something else. Yes, I know it's hard to imagine ... me craving something other than Chick-fil-A but it does happen.

What's pink, sweet and sour, with a touch of green, and a whole lot of cool?

Why, that would be a glass of refreshing Strawberry Limeade.

Doesn't this look delicious?

I've mentioned before about my affection for the Strawberry Limeades from Sonic. And while you can't beat the price, especially during happy hour, it's not always convenient to bop on over to the local drive thru. Therefore, I decided it was time to come up with my own concoction of yummy refreshment.

Guess what?! Yesterday I was successful in making my own batch of Strawberry Limeade that rivals that of Sonic. It was really good except for missing one key ingredient (well two if you count that I used lemonade in my mix instead of limeade) ... I had to (GASP!) use regular old freezer ice cubes in place of Sonic's crunchy ice.

Sonic's ice rocks! If you get drinks from there you know what I'm talking about. If not, you have no idea what you're missing. Fortunately there's a quick fix for this problem. Did you know that you can buy bags of ice from them? YES, you can. How cool is that?

I'll go ahead and post this very easy and simple recipe 'cause I just know someone's gonna ask. You're welcome and it's my pleasure!

SAIDFRAZ's Strawberry LimeLemonade that tastes just like Sonics

1 16oz package of frozen sliced strawberries, defrosted
1 2-liter bottle of Country Time Lemonade
1/2 cup of sugar dissolved in 1/2 c hot water
1 lime cut into wedges

Believe me, it couldn't have been any easier. Now if I can just figure out how to cram a bag of their ice into my freezer I'll be set!


  1. Wow! Very neat!! I just went to sonic yesterday with Andrew and the youth group here in Knoxville and I got a strawberry limeade! I'm wondering though, isn't there soda or soda bubbles in the limeade? How did you do that with your recipe?

  2. You're right Sarah. I thought the bottled lemonade had carbonated water in it but it doesn't. I'm thinking next time I should use Sprite or Sierra Mist instead.

    Glad to hear you got to meet up with group. I'm sure they're having a blast.
