Whether it is a DIY, a craft or yummy food, I am always making and creating and I love to share my ideas on my site! With cherries just in season (and oh-so-delicious, I might add) I decided to make a delicious batch of Homemade Cherry Limeade for my family to enjoy, and let me tell you, this is so much better then anything you can buy in the store!
It is delicious, fresh, and you know exactly what goes into it! And the best part is, this really isn’t too hard to make either! So whip up a batch and then enjoy a beautiful summer day while sipping a glass of your homemade cherry limeade!
Homemade Cherry Limeade
24 Cherries, pitted
4 Limes, washed
2 cups Sugar (more or less to taste)
8 cups Water + 1/4 cups Water
- Begin by placing your pitted cherries and 1/4 cup water in a blender. Blend these until they are completely pureed and smooth. Strain these and then set the cherry juice aside. This will equal about 1 cup of cherry juice. (I love this cherry pitter. (affiliate link for your convenience))
- Mix 8 cups of water and about 2 cups of sugar together and set aside.
- Wash your limes, cut the ends off and then cut them in half. Place about half of the limes and half of the sugar water in a blender and blend until smooth. Strain that into a pitcher and then repeat with the rest of your water and limes.
- Add the cherry juice into the lime / water mixture and stir together well! You can add more water or more sugar at this point if it isn’t quite as sweet as you like it or if it is too strong.
- Chill then serve!
This yummy drink is a perfect way to cool down on a hot summer day! And it would be perfect to serve at your next BBQ!
