Cherry Lemonade

What's better on a hot day than a tall glass of ice cold lemonade?   Not much!  This fizzy & fruity twist on the classic is a great way to beat the heat this summer.  So, mix up a batch and enjoy!

Cherry Lemonade

¼ cup water
4 tbsp honey (or superfine sugar if you don't like honey)
6 tbsp maraschino cherry juice
½ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 3-4 lemons)
2-3 cups seltzer water
maraschino cherries


1. In a pitcher, stir together the water and honey until the honey dissolves completely.

2. Stir in the cherry juice and lemon juice.

3. Pour 2 cups of the seltzer water into the pitcher.  Gently stir.  This makes a strong lemonade, perfect for serving with lots of ice (which will water it down).  Add more seltzer water to taste.

4.  Serve over ice and garnish with cherries.
