Cherry Lemonade

Yum

Summer is almost here and refreshing fruity drinks are soon to be all the rage. Try this sweet and tart Cherry lemonade to quench your thirst.  I adore lemons in almost everything from sweet and savory dishes so I always have it in my kitchen.  Cherries are another favorite of mine.  Put them together and you have a little bit of magic in a glass.





 Ingredients:
2 cups fresh cherries
1 cup fresh lemon juice
1 cup simple syrup (or to taste)
5 cups water or club soda

Ingredients for simple syrup:
1 cup sugar
1 cup water


 Directions:
Make simple syrup by bringing water and sugar to a simmer until sugar is fully dissolved.  Allow to cool.

Pit cherries then juice them by putting them through blender.  Strain through wire mess. Mix with lemon juice, simple syrup and water or for a fizzy drink add club soda.  Serve chilled or over ice.  Enjoy.
