Cherry Limeade

















(makes 4-6 servings)

Ingredients:

2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup water
1/2 cup lime juice (approximately 4 1/2 limes; use the remainder of limes for garnish)
1 1/2 cups pure cherry juice (no sweeteners added)
2 cups club soda
Instructions:
- Begin by dissolving the sugar in the water over medium heat to create a simple syrup. Set aside when done to let cool completely.
- While the simple syrup is cooling, juice the limes.
- When the simple syrup has cooled pour that in a pitcher, add the lime juice, cherry juice and club soda. (Do not add the club soda until ready to serve.)
- Stir all together to combine well and serve immediately over crushed ice or cover and refrigerate.
