Drink of the Week: Cherry Limeade Cooler

Hello, NowOmaha.com readers! As we delve deeper into June, we are reminded of the delightful flavors that this sunny month has to offer. This week, we’re introducing you to a cocktail that’s not just refreshing but also captures the essence of a classic summer treat: the Cherry Limeade Cooler. Bright, sweet, and slightly tart, this cocktail is perfect for a backyard BBQ, a picnic in the park, or simply to sip on while lounging on your patio. Let’s learn a bit about cherry limeades and then get into how to make the Cherry Limeade Cooler.

Cherry limeades, a delightful mix of cherries, limes, sugar, and sparkling water, have been a favorite summertime beverage for many years, especially in the American Midwest. It’s believed that limeades became popular in the United States in the early 20th century as limes became more widely available. Cherries were added to the mix to bring in a new level of sweetness and complexity.

Our Cherry Limeade Cooler cocktail takes the beloved flavors of a cherry limeade and adds a fun adult twist. Cherry vodka and a splash of lime liqueur bring the familiar flavors to life, while club soda adds a touch of refreshing fizz.

Here’s the recipe for the Cherry Limeade Cooler:


  • 2 ounces cherry vodka
  • 1 ounce lime liqueur (like Licor 43 Lime)
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • Club soda to top
  • Fresh cherries and lime slices, for garnish


  1. Fill a highball glass with ice cubes.
  2. Pour in the cherry vodka, lime liqueur, fresh lime juice, and simple syrup.
  3. Top with club soda, and stir gently to combine.
  4. Garnish with fresh cherries and a lime slice.

Enjoy the invigorating flavors of the Cherry Limeade Cooler, and raise a glass to the vibrant season of summer. Cheers!
