Refreshing family favorite
Homemade Cherry Limeade, this time without cherry or lime slice garnish.
This drink is fantastic after a day of yardwork or play. Or book restoration :-). Yes, that's what we've been busy doing, instead of writing.
My husband likes to make slushies or smoothies with fresh cherries, one lime, lots of ice and a bit of sugar to taste. I think of it more as a slush, since there is more ice than our usual smoothies. He used about 17 or 20 cherries this particular time.
I like to take a can of frozen limeade concentrate and add to it some sparkling wild cherry water (in place of plain water dilution) from the grocery store. This is already pre-sweetened, but is just flavored sparkling water.
For the beverage in the photo above, I combined hubby's slush (about 1/4 portion to my carafe of cherry limeade) with my concoction, and together, they made the most scrumptious and refreshing cherry limeade we've made to date!
