Cherry Limeade, easy cherry limeade

Cherry limeade, quick easy version for a refreshing drink. Quick video, step by step pictures.

I started buying cherry only last year, have not tasted before other than the preserved/ glaced cherry in cakes. Somehow thought it would be sour or something. Some how once bought and it was too good. I soak it in salted water and ended up eating it with a sprinkle of salt. Have you tried nava pazham with salt? It was something like that and we liked it.

Though we did not continue eating with salt, we occasionally buy and consume when it’s fresh stock and there’s a good deal. Now after long time got it, had some left over so thought of trying limeade and posting here too. We loved it. Never thought it will give such good colour. This is simple version than cooking it and processing. Check out my Strawberry watermelon juice.
