(Question: is there a difference between a potato purée and mashed potatoes?)
I looked at some potato purée recipes online and the main difference I see is that classic mashed potatoes are simply mashed and not smooth. The basic ingredients (potatoes, milk or cream, butter, salt and pepper) seem to be the same. 🤷🏿‍♂️

I agree with JN - potato puree has a finer consistency. I prefer mashed potato as the puree can be too soft and lack texture.
Cherry and lime sounds... unusual
It does, and I did wonder what it would be like but I find the cherry Pepsi max too sweet and wanted to take that edge off it. It worked though,(for me at any rate). I"m not sure it would work with a straight cherryade though.

Thanks for the clarification. I've been taught in school to say "mashed potatoes" but recently I've been seeing a lot the use of "potato purée" in recipes/cooking reality shows/etc. I guess I usually prepare potato purée then, since I not only mash the potatoes, but press them on a fine mesh sieve so it comes out very smooth. Also, in portuguese we say "purê de batata" which sounds very similar.

I think that these days people want to make things sound grander or more dramtic than they are. Reports just used to have a summary, now they have an 'executive summary' What on earth makes it executive? People used to contact others, now thy 'reach out' Churches used to have organists or/and choir masters, not they have musical directors and so on and so on. It looks as if the humble mashed potato has suffered the same fate.
