Sour Cherry Lemonade
1 3/4 cup lemon juice (about 12 lemons)
1 cup of sugar
3 quarts of water
Take a 1lb bag of sour cherries. Pit them and simmer those babies with 1 cup of sugar, 1 cup of water and a tablespoon of fresh lemon juice for about 30 minutes. Strain and reserve syrup.
Combine lemon juice, sugar and water. Add cherry syrup to taste. Not a big sweets person? Cut the sugar in the lemonade and then just use more syrup, tasting to your preferred sweetness.
