Here is a recipe from Taste of Home for Cherry Limeade.

Yummy for the 4th of for any other summer day! I *heart* cherry limeade!

What you need:
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

What you do:
In a large bowl, combine lime juice and sugar substitute. Cover and refrigerate. Just before serving, stir carbonated water into lime juice mixture.
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.

Makes 8 servings

I wonder if you could do this with strawberry or raspberry somehow instead. Cherry flavoring always reminds me of cough syrup. Gag. Ack. Anyway, it looks yummy, thanks for posting. =)

I love limeades. My favorite is strawberry. I used to always get one at sonic but since they dont have one around here I should start makeing my own.
