This cherry lemonade refreshing drink is one of my favorite summer beverages. It is easy to make and non-alcoholic so the whole family can enjoy it!
Sometimes, we have this special lemonade for parties in the winter months. However, we always seem to have this drink option at our summer gatherings. Heck, we have a pitcher of this in our refrigerator most summer days.
Perfect Summertime Beverage to Keep in the Refrigerator
It has the perfect hint of sweetness and tartness. It is hard not to chug down the first glass and pour another one right away. At least, that is what my husband does. I must admit, I had two full glasses of this yesterday. If someone stops by, they are happy to enjoy a glass with us.
Easy Cherry Lemonade Takes Minutes to Make
This easy cherry lemonade takes just minutes to make. No saucepan or simple syrup are required. I love recipes like this that taste like you spent extra time making this when it just takes a few minutes to combine the flavors.
Use a powdered lemonade mix, following the instructions on the canister to make 2 quarts, slice up a lemon and throw it in. Add an entire jar of Maraschino cherries, using all the juice and all the cherries. Mix it all together and serve over ice.
Enjoy the perfect cherry lemonade at home, cookouts, and parties.
Garnish the Beverage for a Pretty Party Look
If I know ahead of time that guests are coming over, I make sure to have more cherries on hand and plenty of lemons. Dress it up with lemon slices and few fresh cherries and it is sure to impress your guests. Sometimes, a spring of mint is pretty in the glass and it adds a bit of fresh flavor too.
It is just those little touches that turn an ordinary cherry lemonade into a special party beverage. Turn it from ordinary to WOW with a pretty glass and a garnish or two.
