How Long Does This Cherry Limemade Last in the Refrigerator?
Homemade cherry limemade will keep for about one week if kept in the refrigerator, assuming that it’s stored properly in some type of container with an airtight lid.
Homemade lemonades and limemades usually don’t last as long as their store bought counterparts for the simple reason being that they’re made with all-natural ingredients, while many commercial products contain additives and preservatives that extend their shelf life.
Can I Use Frozen Cherries for This Recipe?
You can just as easily use frozen cherries when making this limemade instead of fresh cherries. That’s great news for many people like myself who usually keep a big bag of frozen cherries on hand throughout the year.
Can I Use Liquid Stevia Instead of Raw Honey?
If you would rather not use raw honey when making this cherry limemade, you can definitely swap it out for liquid stevia instead. Just keep in mind that liquid stevia is a lot sweeter than raw honey, so you’re going to want to adjust the amount.
In place of ⅓ cup of raw honey, you’ll instead want to use around ¼ to ⅓ of a teaspoon of liquid stevia if you’re going to use it as a replacement when making this cherry limemade.
Can I Use Lemons Instead of Limes To Make Cherry Lemonade?
Cherry lemonade can be just as delicious as cherry limemade; it’s all really just a matter of personal preference.
If you want to use lemons instead of limes when you make this recipe, you can easily just swap the two of them at a 1:1 ratio thanks to their similar taste and acidic content.
