Cherry Lemonade is a summertime beverage made from fresh cherries and lemon. It is a nice twist on the usual lemonade and is one of my favorite drinks.
Lemonade usually consists of lemon juice mixed with water and sugar. The juice of cherries combines deliciously with lemonade to add an extra flavor.
This drink is the perfect to quench your thirst in the hot summer days when you get plenty of cherries. It is also a good way to use leftover cherries if they become overripe and squishy.
Altogether it is a perfect summer drink that combines the goodness of cherries and lemon. It is low in calories, rich in antioxidants and packed with many minerals & vitamins including vitamin C.
