Who says that simplicity can't be delicious? My copycat fresh lime soda is simple, made with few ingredients, and refreshing!
One of my favorite things about summer when I was a kid was going to the local drive-in and getting a Fresh Lime soda. Since I don't live in my hometown, I decided to make a copycat recipe for myself. It is really simple with few ingredients, but you'll love the bubbly zip that will make you pucker just a little bit. So, cool off this summer with my Copycat Fresh Lime Soda!
This is all you need to make a copycat fresh lime soda. Fresh limes, a can of lemon-lime soda, and nugget ice. The nugget ice isn't essential but preferable. Each drink uses about 1 ½ limes worth of juice. That ends up being roughly 1 ½ tablespoons of lime juice.
Slice up the remaining half of the lime and add the lime slices to a large glass half-filled with nugget ice. Pour the fresh lime juice over the slices and ice. Then fill the rest of the glass with a can of lemon-lime soda.
Please note that I used an entire 12 oz can of soda per 1 ½ tablespoons of lime juice. If you are going to make these in small portions, adjust the lime juice accordingly. Also, if you really like a lime zip to your drink, then increase the lime juice by another ½ to a full tablespoon.
Copycat Fresh Lime Soda
