Ingredients Convert to Metric

  • 1 (16 oz) bag frozen pitted cherries, thawed *
  • 2 cup orange juice
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 cup club soda
  • 2 thin orange slices, cut in half

Directions:

In a blender, purée the cherries (strain the juice to get rid of pulp, if desired). Pour the puréed cherries into a large pitcher. With a long-handled wooden spoon, stir in orange juice, lemon juice and lime juice.

Place ice in 4 tall glasses. Pour the juice mixture over the ice and add 1/2 cup of club soda to each serving. Or, pour the mixture back into the blender and blend with a few pieces of ice on medium speed for a slushy effect.

Garnish each glass with orange slices and serve.

Variations:

* Can replace frozen cherries with pitted, fresh cherries.

Instead of preparing individual servings, this sparkling fruit drink can be served in a punch bowl garnished with orange slices. You’ll have the whole party drinking to their health.
