CHERRY LEMONADE

A couple of years ago I posted this sparkling grapefruit lemonade, when it starts to get hot I make it very often, it's almost addictive! I love lemons so I enjoy a lot any kind of lemonade from the classic one to any version with fruit or aromatic herbs...

When I lived in Portugal I used to go to a place where they had strawberry lemonade and loved it. I've tested with various fruits and red berries specially combine very well. They reduce the lemon acidic flavour and make it a refreshing, healthy non alcoholic drink that I enjoy drinking any time of the day. Also ideal for bbq, pic-nics or just to get hydrated throughout the day...I don't have any trouble with drinking enough water, I can actually drink a couple of litres or more per day with no effort, however I like having natural flavoured drinks in hand that are quick to make. Like these fruit infused waters I posted long ago, nothing better to have a bottle or two of these ready to drink in the fridge...  So among all the flavoured lemonades this one with cherries is one of my favourites and now they are in season it's the best moment to make it. 
 At the bottom of the post you can find a couple of tips about cherries... ;)

For this recipe I use regular cold water, however, same as for the grapefruit lemonade you can use half sparkling - half still and it will also be great. Use the amount of maple syrup you prefer, just try it out and adjust to your taste!
And as always... even though it is delicious when it's freshly made, the truth is it's even better after a few hours kept  in the fridge!

HOW TO MAKE IT

  1. We'll be using a blender or Thermomix in my case, however you can also use a hand blender.
  2. Pour the cherries and the lemon juice and blend until you make like a thin purée.
  3. Add the maple syrup and the water and blend at maximum speed for 1 minute until well mixed.
  4. Add some ice cubes and it's ready to enjoy!

*LITTLE TIPS AND HACKS*

You can ideally buy a big amount of cherries and freeze them so when the season is out you will have cherries available if you want to make this lemonade, also ice creams, smoothies...
Also there's a good tip I was told recently that I would like to share... If you have Thermomix you can remove the pits super quickly by placing the cherries inside, setting the inverse spin button, speed 4, for 5 to 10 seconds and done! The pits will be detached from the cherries, you just need to remove them. (Do not know what the result might be using any other blender).
