After coming home from picking cherries, I always like to give them a little washing. One of the biggest reasons is that the birds really love cherries and are all over the trees. Sometimes there are droppings that you may or may not see. Yuck.
Just a quick little washing and gentle rub in cold water and then they're all ready to go.
You know what's so tasty and refreshing with fresh cherries? A Cherry Fizz!
It's really simple. All you need is some sparkling water, lemonade, ice, and fresh cherries.
Layer ice, pitted and halved cherries, and then pour on sparkling water and lemonade. Give a quick stir, and you're ready to SIP.
