Easy cherry lemonade is a delicious summer drink that the whole family will enjoy.  Use black cherry juice, fresh lemon juice, sugar, and water to make this refreshing treat.  No simple syrup needed!



  • 2/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (160 ml)
  • 1/4 cup water (60 ml)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar (100g)
  • 1 1/4 cups dark cherry juice (280 ml)


  1. Squeeze the lemon juice from about 5 medium lemons using a citrus reamer.  You’ll get more juice from each lemon if you firmly roll the fruit on the counter before squeezing it.
  2. Stir the lemon juice, water, and sugar together in a measuring cup or pitcher until the sugar has completely dissolved.
  3. Mix in the cherry juice until blended.
  4. Pour over ice and garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.  Enjoy immediately.
