Sparkling Honey Limeade


It really doesn’t get more refreshing than an ice cold drink of limeade. This fresh homemade limeade is so easy to make and it’s naturally sweetened with honey and lime.

Summer Lemonades and Limeades

You can never have too many lemonade recipes right? This is the third lemonade (or in this case limeade) recipes in a month. It’s summer and I’m slightly obsessed (definitely try the Watermelon Lemonade and Raspberry Lemonade recipes I shared too)!

Fresh homemade limeade is so easy to make, they only tedious part is getting all the juice out of those limes but the limeade is so worth it in the end!

Try Sweetening Limeade with Honey

For this limeade I decided to sweeten it with half honey and half sugar because lime and honey always pair so well together. It would also be delicious if you wanted to mix in some cherry juice which I think I’ll try next time. I used to be someone that said I was only going to get my sugars from desserts not drinks, but with a drink this good that has changed my whole outlook. I’d definitely choose this Limeade as my sweet for the day.

  • Molly cottle: How much does this serve? And do we use maraschino cherries? September 20, 2018 at 1:13pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: About 5 servings. And these were actually fresh cherries just really read so I can see why you thought that (maraschino might alter the color a bit). The cherries are just for looks so totally optional. September 24, 2018 at 11:33am Reply
