- 1 1/2 pound cherries (about 6 cups), pitted, divided
- 1 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup lime juice, plus 2 teaspoons finely grated lime zest
- 6 cups sparkling water
- 1 lime, cut into wedges
To make each glass of limeade, pour about 1/2 cup of the cherry-lime syrup and 3/4 cup still or sparkling water over ice in a tall glass. Stir well and then top with a small handful of the remaining cherries, garnish with a lime wedge and serve.
