Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
The combination of club soda, syrup and ice creates some serious fizz. This drink is so delightful and thirst quenching. You can make the syrup ahead of time and keep it in the fridge up to a week!
- 3 cups about 1 lb Fresh (or frozen) Northwest cherries
- 1 cup lemon juice from about 6 medium lemons
- 1 cup sugar you can use 3/4 cup if you like
- 6-8 cups club soda to taste
- Lemon slices and Ice to serve
How to Make the Best Cherry Lemonade Syrup:
Rinse, drain and pit your cherries.
In a blender, combine 3 cups pitted cherries, 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice and 1 cup sugar. If you're cutting down on sugar in your life, feel free to use 3/4 cup sugar. Blend until smooth. You don't want pieces of cherry to get stuck in your straw.
Creating Sparkling Cherry Lemonade:
Fill a glass half way with ice. Pour 2-3 Tbsp of your cherry syrup over your ice and add club soda to taste. It's usually 1/4 cup syrup to 3/4 cup club soda. Top with a fresh cherry and serve. You're gonna love the fizzle. My sisters both said this was restaurant quality except WAY cheaper!
