My guests enjoy this refreshing cherry-topped drink. It's just right on a hot southern summer evening. And it's pretty, too.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup lime juice
  • Sugar substitute equivalent to 1 cup sugar
  • 2 liters lime carbonated water, chilled
  • 1/2 cup maraschino cherry juice
  • 8 maraschino cherries with stems
  • 8 lime slices

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine lime juice and sugar substitute. Cover and refrigerate. Just before serving, stir carbonated water into lime juice mixture.
  2. For each serving, place 1 tablespoon cherry juice in a glass. Add crushed ice and about 1 cup of lime juice mixture. Garnish with a maraschino cherry and a lime slice.
