The Best Homemade Cherry Coke

The secret to restaurant style cherry coke at home - Rae Gun Ramblings

  • Cherry Syrup
  • Maraschino Cherries
  • Coke
  • Ice Cube Tray
  1. Place a cherry in each ice cube slot.
  2. Add one pump of cherry syrup to each cube spot.
  3. Top with water.
  4. Freeze until solid.

When you are ready to serve pop a couple into a glass of Coke and enjoy. I only had a heart ice cube tray which I thought made it extra cute. How fun would these be for Valentine’s Day!

The secret to getting the perfect soda shop tasting cherry coke at home - Rae Gun Ramblings

You guys already know I’m a diet coke addict. I usually buy cherry coke zero but for fun (and let’s be honest for cuteness) I decided to make these fun cherry flavoring ice cubes and I have to say they are AH-mazing. Like I’m in love. If you like real cherry cokes like from restaurants with real flavorings this is as good. I’ve tried just the syryp and it doesn’t do the trick something about the cherries make the flavoring just right! They are so so easy to make too!

Easy Cheesy Bread Sticks and Fun Shaped Pizza Bites

Why didn't I think of t his before. Cheese filled bread sticks. Rae Gun Ramblings One of my nieces doesn’t like pizza but she’s happy to each cheese bread. So to make everyone happy I bought a DiGiorno Pepperoni Stuffed Crust Pizza then I just chopped off the crust called it cheese sticks and served it with some dipping sauce. While I was cutting up the pizza I figured it would be fun to make the pizza into fun shaped bites. Turn a regular frozen pizza into darling pizza bites with cookie cutters - Rae Gun Ramblings

  • Stuffed Crust Pizza (I like DiGiorno)
  • Cookie Cutters

To make the bread sticks just cut off the crust straighten the cut edge and and cut into stick sized pieces. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce (we like ranch). With the rest of the pizza use cookie cutters to make cute shapes. For game night you can easy make football bites. I found a “Easter egg” shaped cookie cutter works perfectly to get a good football shape.

Easy Valentine's Day idea. Cut a frozen pizza into heart shaped bites - Rae Gun Ramblings

And how fun would a whole heart themed meal be with little pizza bites as one of the components? In addition to these fun ideas I like to have Ritz crackers out with my favorite sliced cheeses and sausage or if I have some more time I’ll whip up a batch of my 20 minute crab cakes. These ideas were so quick and easy plus I was able to find the pizza, Ritz crackers, and coca-cola on sale at Walmart so that’s even more of a bonus!

    I want to make the cherry coke ice cubes for Valentine’s Day! When you say cherry syrup do you mean grenadine or not? Do you have a cherry syrup you would recommend? I’ve even seen Marachino Cherry syrup so I’m not sure what to get. Help, please!

    • I have the syrup on hand that they use in coffee shops (they sell them at the grocery stores in a tall bottle) but i bet you could also just use the juice from the cherry dpending on how many youre making
