Fresh Cherry Limeade

Made with sweet, juicy cherries and tart lime juice, this icy refresher is hard to resist on hot summer days.

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 pound cherries (about 6 cups), pitted, divided
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup lime juice, plus 2 teaspoons finely grated lime zest
  • Sparkling water (optional)
  • 1 lime, cut into wedge
Method:
Put 1 pound of the cherries, sugar and 1 1/2 cups water into a medium pot; cover and simmer over medium heat (reducing heat, as needed, to maintain a simmer) until cherries are very tender and have made a fragrant syrup, about 20 minutes. Set aside to let cool and then purée in a blender with lime juice and zest.

To make each glass of limeade, pour about 1/2 cup of the cherry-lime syrup and 3/4 cup still or sparkling water over ice in a tall glass. Stir well and then top with a small handful of the remaining cherries, garnish with a lime wedge and serve.
