Spectacular Sour Cherry Lemonade - YUM

The sun is out and I am parched!

Wouldn’t a nice glass of this bad boy make you feel like summer, from the inside out?


For the Syrup:

400g fresh sour (tart) cherries (or drained thawed frozen), pitted (3 cups)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup water
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

For the Lemonade:

Ice cubes
4 cups club soda
1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice (from 8 lemons)
1/2 cup superfine sugar

Garnish: fresh sour (tart) cherries

Make the syrup:
Simmer cherries, granulated sugar, water, and lemon juice in a medium saucepan over medium heat until cherries are broken down and juicy and liquid is syrupy, about 30 minutes.

Strain cherries and syrup through a fine sieve; discard solids. Let cool completely.

Make the lemonade:
Fill a large pitcher with ice. Add club soda, lemon juice, superfine sugar, and 1/2 cup cherry syrup; stir to combine. Garnish with fresh cherries.

Divide lemonade among glasses and devour! Perfect for the next family BBQ, lovely for a garden party, delicious just to sip in the sunshine at home.
