Hi Five Heart Home readers! I’m Aimee from Like Mother, Like Daughter – where my mom and I blog and share our favorite recipes, cooking products, restaurants, travel spots and more! When Samantha asked for helped this summer while she and her family are enjoying some fun and family time, I knew I would love to step in. So today I’m sharing this amazing Cherry Lemonade with you!Cherry Lemonade ~ make this refreshing drink recipe with fresh red cherries for pink lemonade or Ranier cherries for a lovely shade of yellow! | LMLD.org for FiveHeartHome.com

Now you are probably wondering why my lemonade isn’t pink – I used Rainier cherries for my lemonade because they are my favorite! But regular cherries would work just as great, too, and will make your lemonade pink if that’s the way you want it. 😉

I love making lemonade at home in the summertime because its the perfect refreshing drink, and so great on a hot day like the ones we’ve been having!
