I think they put crack in Sonic Cherry Limeade

...because it really is good. I had never been to a Sonic or really heard much about them, and a neighbor mentioned a Sonic had opened in Hillsboro. And she said it with wonder and awe like people did when Krispy Kreme first opened in Oregon. After we almost sweated ourselves to nothingness on the 4th, I convinced AdRi to take a little detour past the new Sonic because I wanted a limeade. I don't know where I had heard about these limeades...somewhere in the blogosphere someone had written about them I suppose.
Limeade, Low Calorie Diet Limeade, Cherry Limeade, Low Calorie Diet Cherry Limeade, Strawberry Limeade, Apple Limeade and Cranberry Limeade

First of all, the place was packed. Drive-in stalls all full, line outside, and the drive-through had a line too. Well I guess there's a buzz about this place: who knew? Not me. And then we see the menu. Limeades of all different kinds, fruit drinks (with real fruit), and they even sell bags of their "famous" ice. (mmmm....ice....it's soft and easy to chew)

The cherry limeade was good. No, I mean, really good. And there were real limes in that thing. And a cherry. It was so good I asked her to bring me one home 2 nights later. I see a habit forming. The only downside? They come in a styrofoam cup. And man, I hate styrofoam. It's B-A-D. I've been known to turn down drinks that came in styrofoam. But Sonic Cherry Limeade? I wonder if I can bring my own cup.

Here's hoping AdRi calls on her way home and asks if I need anything...

In a tall glass add the cherry syrup, squeeze of lime. Pour in Sprite, add ice and serve.

I Loves me some Sonic. I love the chili cheese tots. Yum. I always get diet dr pepper with cherry & vanilla added. I used to be hooked on the cherry limeade though.

Hello. My name is Patti. I'm a Sonic-a-holic.

There are Sonics where I used to live in California... there are Sonics all around Las Vegas. I have never been to one. Call me square.

We don't have Sonic near where I live. I just looked, the closest one is 18 miles away. But you're making it sound like it'd be worth that 36 mile round trip. DAMMIT!
