Recipe type: Drinks
Serves: 8-10
  • 1 C dark pitted cherries (we used frozen)
  • 2¼ C sugar
  • 2 C lemon juice
  • 4 C ice cubes
  • 5 C water
  1. Place about 1C dark pitted cherries in a small bowl with ¼ C sugar. Set aside while you get juice the lemons.
  2. Juice lemons to get about 2 C lemon juice.
  3. In a blender, dump in the cherry/sugar mixture into the blender. Dump in the sugar. Then, add in the 2 cups of lemon juice, 1 cup of water, and about 3 cups of ice. Blend well. Pour blender contents into a pitcher.
  4. Then, in the blender combine 4 cups of water with another cup of ice. Blend well and pour contents into the pitcher.
  5. Stir the pitcher contents to combine and serve immediately.
Notes: If you don't want it slushy, just play with the ingredients, subbing water for the ice. Also, depending on the tartness of your lemons, you may need a bit more sugar. But, this ratio was perfect for us.
