Limeade Cooler

I love the Limeade drinks from Sonic Drive-In and was glad to find this recipe.


  • 3/4 cup lime juice (about 10 limes if you are using fresh)
  • Ad
  • 16 packets of Splenda sugar substitute (or other brands), sweeten to taste
  • 5 cups cold water
  • 1 lime, thinly sliced


Squeeze limes, if using, over fine mesh strainer into measuring cup; discard pulp (I don't want to do this so I just buy some lime juice!)

In large pitcher add the lime juice, sweetener, and cold water. Stir.

Add lime slices.

Pour into chilled glasses over ice.

Variation: Use lemon juice instead of lime juice and use sliced lemon in place of the lime.

My Hint: For a yummy change, add some Maraschino cherry juice to each glass of limeade and a cherry or two and you have a Cherry Limeade similar to the ones at Sonic Drive-In. They are delicious!

Hi there

Can someone please tell me how much Splenda is there in a 'packet' please? I only use loose form diabetic sugar.
