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
How to Make It
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.
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.
