Thirsty Thursday: Sour Cherry Lemonade

With cherries being ripe and plentiful right now, this is a tasty drink that is guaranteed to be a taste bud pleaser. Now all you have to do is grab a Mason jar and colorful straws and you have yourself a heavenly treat!

Sour Cherry Lemonade

1 3/4 cup lemon juice (about 12 lemons)
1 cup of sugar
3 quarts of water

Cherry Syrup:
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.
