Method

Put 1 pound of the cherries, sugar and 1 1/2 cups water into a medium pot; cover and simmer over medium heat (reducing heat, as needed, to maintain a simmer) until cherries are very tender and have made a fragrant syrup, about 20 minutes.

Set aside to let cool and then puree in a blender with lime juice and zest.

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.
