mint cherry limeade
We’re happy to have Aimee from Like Mother Like Daughter back today sharing her delicious mint cherry limeade! We know you’ll love it!
Did you all have a happy first day of summer? It’s not like its a holiday to celebrate, but summer sure is wonderful, isn’t it? Summer to me used to mean no school, which was the best of all. But I still love it – sunshine, laying out, going to the pool, grilling meats, eating lots of watermelon, and drinking lots of refreshing drinks. What does summer mean for you?
Like I said, the hot weather of summer time makes it perfect to sit pool side, soak up some rays and sip down on a refreshing drink.
This mint cherry limeade is perfectly refreshing and perfectly delicious and perfect for summer time. Plus its easy to make too with only a few ingredients.
Mint Cherry Limeade
1/2 cup cherries, pitted
1/2 cup lime juice (this was 3 limes for me)
3 branches fresh mint
1 cup sugar
5 cups water, divided
1. Combine 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil and stir until sugar is dissolved. Put mint into the pot and squish a little with a spoon. Cover with a lid and set aside and allow to cool.
2. Blend cherries in a blender or food processor with 1 cup of water until blended.
3. In a pitcher pour simple syrup through a strainer. Add cherries, lime juice and additional 3 cups of water.
4. Fill a cup with ice and pour limeade over the top.
Enjoy this refreshing drink!
