This is horrible. It tastes like you are drinking thick marachino cherry juice. It took way too long to strain and was still horribly thick. I had to put in a larger container and keep adding more water (after the initial 3 cups). Way too sweet and no lemon taste at all. Not a good recipe.
Yield: Makes 6 cups
- 1 (14-ounce) package frozen raspberries, thawed
- 1 (16-ounce) jar maraschino cherries without stems
- 1 1/4 cups sugar
- 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice (about 5 lemons)
- 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 1 large lime)
- 3 cups water
- Process first 5 ingredients in a blender until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides. Pour fruit mixture through a wire-mesh strainer into a pitcher, discarding solids. Stir in 3 cups water. Serve over ice.
- Blackberry Lemonade: Substitute 1 (14-ounce) package frozen blackberries, thawed, for frozen raspberries. Proceed as directed. Makes 6 cups.
- Cherry-Berry Lemonade: Substitute 1 (16-ounce) package frozen mixed berries, thawed, for frozen raspberries. Proceed as directed, using 2 cups water. Makes 5 cups.
- Cherry-Berry Lemonade Pops: Pour Cherry-Berry Lemonade evenly into 14 (4-ounce) plastic pop molds. Insert plastic pop sticks, and freeze 4 hours or until firm. Makes 14 pops.
