Cherry Lime Agua Fresca
Makes about 6 cups
1 pound cherries, pitted
1/3 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (about 2 juicy limes)
1/4 cup honey
4 cups cold water
slices of lime, to garnish
1. Put the cherries, lime juice, honey, and water in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour the juice through a fine mesh strainer into a large pitcher, pressing the fruit pulp to get as much juice out of it as possible. Skim the foam off the top of the juice and discard.
2. Taste the juice and add more lime or honey to taste, if needed. Cover the pitcher and refrigerate the juice until it is chilled.
3. Stir the juice before serving, then serve over ice with a slice of lime for garnish.
