Mint Cherry Limeade

A refreshing cold drink of cherries, mint, and lemonade, perfect for a hot afternoon cool down.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup cherries (pitted)
  • 1/2 cup lime juice (this was 3 limes for me)
  • 3 sprigs fresh mint
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 5 cups water (divided)

Instructions

  • Combine 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil and stir until sugar is dissolved. Put mint into the pot and squish a little with a spoon. Cover with a lid and set aside and allow to cool.
  • Blend cherries in a blender or food processor with 1 cup of water until blended.
  • In a pitcher pour simple syrup through a strainer. Add cherries, lime juice and additional 3 cups of water.
  • Fill a cup with ice and pour limeade over the top.
