Easy Cherry Lemonade is Just Right
This drink is not too sweeet and not too tart. It has just the right amount of sweetness and quenches the thirst perfectly. It is hard not to chug down the first glass and pour another one right away.
At least, that is what my husband does. I must admit, I had two full glasses of this yesterday.
In the summer months, it seems we like to drink a lot of refreshing cool beverages like this more often. Therefore, we always have a cold pitcher of this or another deliciousness waiting for us in the refrigerator.
We also love Sun Tea. Have you ever made tea by letting the sun do the work? We do all the time. Here is my recipe. I urge you to give it a try. If you like tea, I have a feeling you will love this tea.
Cherry Lemonade Garnish Ideas
If you are entertaining this summer, make sure that you have plenty of this lemonade on hand. Take this from an ordinary lemonade to a party beverage in minutes with pretty garnishes.
Maraschino or dark sweet cherries, slices of lemon, a sprig of mint are all great options for a beautiful and great tasting garnish.
Be careful when adding cherries with stems or with pits as a garnish. People may not pay attention and choke on them.
