Limeade Makes a Great Party Beverage

Diet Limeade is my favorite drink from Sonic or Chick-fil-A, so I've come up with two home versions, one made with fresh lime juice and the other with frozen limeade. These both taste almost like slushy limeade and are great, especially on a hot summer day here in Texas. I love to top it with fresh lime zest and maybe a maraschino cherry.

See photo directions below for No Calorie Limeade made with fresh limes. For a party, I don't always have time to squeeze limes, so I use bottled juice or frozen limeade. Since some of my friends don't like artificial sweeteners, I made the recipe for the party drink so that you can make the drink with diet or regular soda. You can pour the slushy mixture into individual cups and then pour on whichever soda someone wants. This easy recipe is my go-to party beverage. It is inexpensive, unique and has lots of variations. Try it using other frozen juices like Strawberry, Berry or Lemonade too!
