Cherry Lemonade

Marg (CaymanDesigns) at food.com, inspired me to make this lemonade. The maraschino cherry juice gave this lemonade a lovely shade of pink and a hint of cherry flavor. When making this lemonade, I used a bottled lemon juice rather than fresh lemon juice, as that is what I had on hand, and it tasted great!

Cherry Lemonade

1-1/4 cups lemon juice, bottled or fresh
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup maraschino cherry juice
4 cups cold water
crushed ice, or ice cubes
lemon slices, to garnish beverage
maraschino cherries, to garnish beverage

In a pitcher, add the lemon juice and sugar; stir to combine.

Add the cherry juice and water; stirring briskly to mix.

Add crushed ice or ice cubes to a beverage glass.

Add cherry lemonade to the glass filled with ice.

Garnish each glass with a lemon slice and a maraschino cherry.

Yields: 1-1/2 quarts (48-ounces)
