Ingredients
  • 1 cup R.W. Knudsen Organic Just Tart Cherry® Juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup lime flavored sparkling water
  • 1-2 tbsp agave* (or to taste) (optional)
  • ice
  • sugar and lime wedges to garnish (optional)
Instructions
  1. If using the optional sugar garnish: Using a lime wedge, moisten the rim of two glasses. Sprinkle sugar onto a plate and dip the moistened rim of the glass into the sugar.

  2. Pour the tart cherry juice, lemon juice, lime sparkling water, and agave (if using) in a glass or jar. Mix well. 

  3. Add ice to each glass. Pour half of the sparkling lemonade into each.

  4. Top off with another splash of sparkling water or a squeeze of fresh lime, if desired.

Recipe Notes

*The agave for sweetener is optional. I like really tart flavors and the sugar on the rim of the glass is generally enough sweetness for me. However, 1-2 tbsp of sweetener does balance the flavors well and especially nice if you are not using the sugar on the rim of your glass.
