Cherriade or cherry lemonade
Ingredients for a 1 liter bottle:
250 g cherries
3 cold lemons
4 tablespoons of sugar or honey
Sparkling water (chilled)
Press the juice of the lemons and pour into the blender bowl. Pit the cherries and dip them in the blender as well.
Blitz the cherries into a creamy smoothie. Filter the pulp, if you prefer a clear, particle-free cherriade. Then add the sparkling water and sugar (or honey) and stir until completely dissolved.
Transfer the cherriade to a glass jug and serve immediately, garnished with mint leaves and ice cubes.
