Used to go to Kresge’s in Roseland, south of Chicago Loop.

They had a lime freeze drink (soda?). Sure wish I could find a recipe for that.


Hi Lorrie,

Sorry, I found a few Kresge's recipes, but not one for the lime freeze.

I'll post this. Maybe one of my readers can help.



Hi Lorrie,

Still no luck with a Kresge's recipe for this, but I have found a couple of "lime freeze" recipes that you might want to try. I have no idea what the Kresge's drink was like, so these may not be like it at all - they may just have the same name. One has ice cream, and the other is an old-fashioned soda fountain drink. Note that in the second recipe, "coarse stream" is just a soda fountain term for carbonated water(club soda). I'm not sure what "mash" refers to in that recipe, but it may mean to squeeze the lime and/or to crush the mint to release the flavor.
