Refreshing Strawberry Limeade – Sonic Copycat

Refreshing Strawberry Limeade – Sonic Copycat


  • 1 1/2 cups strawberries, stems removed and sliced
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 part lemon lime soda (I used about 1/4 of a liter)
  • 2 parts seltzer (preferably lemon lime seltzer, if not add a couple extra tbsp lime juice)
  • turbinado sugar, optional for rimming glasses
  • juice from 1 lime
  • limes, sliced for garnish
  • ice


  1. Add berries and sugar to a bowl and let macerate for about 30 minutes.
  2. Add berries to a food processor (or blender) and pulse until smooth.
  3. In a large pitcher add ice (about 1/3 of the way), then top with 2 parts seltzer to one part lemon lime soda.
  4. Stir in a few scoops of strawberry puree and add juice from 1 lime.
  5. Stir well then taste. Add more strawberry and lime juice if needed.
  6. I add thinly slice lime to the pitcher and garnish the glasses with lime wedges and a sugared rim.
