Homemade mint lemonade with frozen cherries and fresh mint herb.
We love lemonades around my house. Especially my older son. He loves mint and he loves lemon. When I was little I didn’t like mint as much as he do. Mint reminds me of medicine for cold or upset stomach. Whenever, I was sick as a little girl I had mint drops. The liquid made from mint. It had many benefits and helped me to cure. Overtime, I realized that mint is often added in many recipes. Even mint ice cream are so popular. My son always choose mint ice cream over another flavor. I prefer mint drinks instead:)
Honestly, I’ve never made my own lemonade at home. At first I thought that it’s difficult to make and I wasn’t ready to make. Until few days ago. It’s the easiest recipe ever. I don’t have a lot of drink recipes on my blog and I would like to expand this section.
I am going to start with this refreshing cherry mint lemonade. I can say lots of great things about this drink. It is delicious, sweeten enough, not very sour and with perfect amount of mint flavor. I’ve used only one lemon and it was perfectly sour enough. I also used frozen cherries, because I had them in my home. However, if the cherries will be in season you can definitely use the fresh ones.
I noticed that my cherry mint beverage was light pink on the first day. But on the next day it was very pink. And my photos are from the second day. When cherries stays longer in the lemonade they give more vibrant color to the drink.
