We had a day in the SIXTIES last week and so naturally I had an icy cold beverage to celebrate. ?? Because cold drinks and icy treats are something I look forward to ALL winter long. The toddler is the same, except he’ll eat ice cream, slushes, and ice-cold smoothies in the dead of winter. I tend to avoid that just because I can’t seem to warm up after it!

I am so excited to share this delicious icy cold celebration beverage recipe with you today. It’s literally a five-minute beverage to make, it only requires FOUR ingredients, and it’s a light beverage that won’t make you feel sick after drinking it! In fact, the base is simply key-lime flavored sparkling water. So it’s basically it’s a fancy and totally flavorful cherry-lime sparkling water beverage.

So I’ve already mentioned there are only 4 ingredients and the base is a key-lime flavored sparkling water (0 calories). You can pretty much use any kind of sparkling water here, but the key-lime gives this beverage a stronger lime flavor. Annnd key-lime sparkling water just happens to by my favorite ever. It’s delicious in this drink.

The next ingredients are the two juices you add. First, cherry juice. I use 100% cherry juice for this beverage. However, a lot of times cherry juices can be deceiving by saying they are 100% juice but there will be a mix of all kinds of juices. To keep a very strong cherry flavor, check the label on the cherry juice and look what is listened in the ingredients section. It should list only one ingredient: plain cherry juice. If you have one with filtered water it will be a more diluted cherry juice so you’ll want to increase the amount in this beverage.

And the other juice — freshly squeeze lime juice. Juice a couple of limes and add it in. You can also finely grate some lime zest for a stronger lime flavor if desired.4-Ingredient Sparkling CHERRY LIMEADE WATER

The final ingredient to this drink is what makes it sweet. The sparkling water, cherry juice, and lime juice should all be non-artificially sweetened, so you’ll definitely want a little bit of sweetness added. (Otherwise the drink will be very tart!) For this drink, I use a zero calorie stevia sweetener.  I LOVE that this sweetener is made only with real ingredients (stevia plant) which results in a perfectly sweet taste WITHOUT an artificial funky aftertaste.

Plus it’s zero calories making it a great sweetener for someone that wants to live a healthier lifestyle without sacrificing a little bit of sweetness. It’s perfect to go in your morning beverages, smoothies, or a refreshing sparkling cherry limeade!4-ingredient Cherry-Lime Flavored Water. Delicious, refreshing, and low calorie!
