A batch of fresh, sugar-free cherry limeade really hits the spot on these hot summer days. It’s the perfect, refreshing low-calorie drink to serve at a July 4th cookout.

I’ve always been a cherry limeade fan, and I’ve been known to make a special trip to the drive-through for one. But the fast food restaurant version can’t compare to this from-scratch recipe, made from fresh-squeezed lime juice and homemade cherry puree.

While most cherry limeade recipes call for loads of sugar, this version is sweetened with Sweet ‘N Low®, which makes it diabetic friendly.

And though the words “from scratch” may sounds like code for complicated, this recipe isn’t. The most time and labor-intensive part is pitting the cherries. But you’re going to have to do that for any recipe using fresh cherries. Just get yourself a good cherry pitter and get to it.

You won’t regret the work or the juice-stained fingers once you pour yourself a glass.
