Kids enjoy getting involved when making any kind of treat, don’t they?

Cheers to their second glass and a refreshing treat on a hot afternoon!
Apparently, Cherry Limeades are a staple at Sonic. I’ve never been to a Sonic before but I can only imagine how sweet the drink must be.
I don’t care for sweet, artificially flavored drinks but this homemade version peaked my interest.
I thought it might be something my family would enjoy…
I was right!
Plus, I got all the credit for giving them a tasty new treat and unbeknownst to them, they actually did all the work! Winking smile
