If you’ve ever pined after a Sonic cherry limeade but boozy, these White Claw Black Cherry Limeades will do the trick! Fizzy, sweet, and super easy to drink, these limeades will be the life of your next soiree!
Day 4 of White Claw Week and I must remind you these are not sponsored; I just wanted to be the smartypants who capitalized on the White Claw phenomenon taking America by storm.
If you were born on Monday and have yet to immerse yourself in American pop culture, White Claw is a refreshing hard seltzer with only 100 calories, no-sugar and low carb that comes in yummy fruity flavors. It’s light, it’s easy to drink, and it has become an epidemic. I had a guy at Walmart tell me over the weekend that the mango Claw was in a massive nationwide shortage. Air Force 1 and all of the troops were deployed to the White Claw factory to investigate. World War III happened. Mango is back on shelves. That’s how we do in the US of A!
But seriously, if you haven’t tried it, it’s definitely worth it to invest in the multi-pack! They are plenty yummy on their own, but I have to say, I’m biased about my White Claw cocktails (AKA, “claw-ktails”….. okay sorry, I’ll stop).
I remember when Sonic first came to the area and I was OBSESSED with their diet cherry limeades. I would go as often as I could to stock up on a Route 44 DCL (oh yeah) and sip it all afternoon. They’re the perfect combination of slightly carbonated, sweet, a little tangy and just so refreshing! That was exactly what I had in mind when I was concocting this recipe, and I think I nailed it, y’all.
This recipe could easily be made into a mocktail, too, but taking out the vodka and White Claw and just using Sprite or another fizzy, neutral soda or tonic water for the fizz. Yum!
It starts with some simple ingredients: vodka (or rum!), grenadine, limeade, and Black Cherry White Claw. You simply add in the vodka and grenadine to a tall glass, such as a hurricane glass, then add in ice and some limeade to almost fill it, and top with some Black Cherry White Claw. Super easy!!
And soooooo easy to guzzle down. I speak from experience.
- 1.5 oz vodka (or rum)
- 1 oz grenadine
- ½ cup limeade (prepared or homemade)
- Black Cherry White Claw
- Lime wedges, maraschino cherries and ice for serving
- In a tall glass, such as a hurricane glass, add in the vodka and grenadine. Fill the glass with ice and pour in the limeade until it almost reaches the top. Top with Black Cherry White Claw. Garnish with lime wedges and maraschino cherries.
Super yummy stuff right here, and so stinkin’ simple!
