Homemade Cherry Limeade

While growing up we always had a Sonic nearby and an old fashioned soda fountain that made the best cherry limeades. After we moved north, the closest place to find a cherry limeade was in the middle of Iowa on the way to visit family. In the past couple years we've since gained a Sonic but it's still about 30 miles away. For L's birthday party I went searching around the internet through the millions of recipes for cherry limeades. Okay, maybe not millions but there are tons of them out there. This is the recipe that I finally started with and went from there with a little modification.
This is now my go-to homemade cherry limeade recipe:
1 - 2 liter of Sierra Mist
1 can of limeade concentrate - thawed
1 cup maraschino syrup
2 limes
8 maraschino cherries (optional)

Add first 3 ingredients to a large pitcher. Cut both limes into quarters, squeeze a little juice out of each of them into the pitcher before dropping into pitcher. Add maraschino cherries to the pitcher, stir and enjoy over ice.
