Cherry Lemonade

With the soaring temperatures you feel like drinking a chilled juice or ice water. Lemonade always does come to the rescue, it’s easy to make and quenches your thirst in a jiffy. So why not try a variation of the regular lemonade and make a cherry lemonade.
A super chilled and bright coloured cherry lemonade will re-energize you. When I made eggless black forest cake I had some cherry syrup leftover. So I tried this cherry lemonade and I have made it a few times after that. Just boil few cherries with a little sugar and set it aside to chill.

Make usual lemonade and add a little bit of this cherry syrup . And there you have it, a fancy looking cherry lemonade. Try more juices from FOI like watermelon juice, bellada panaka and milkshakes and smoothies.
