To Make a Limeade

 

      Good morning! Today, I'm sharing a recipe for homemade cherry simple syrup that I've been using to make cherry limeades. Previously, I've never been a fan of cherries, but they were recently in season, and I figured if I wanted to change that, now would be the time. They had some great ones at the market, and I ended up loving the syrup in the liemades. It was perfectly sweet and tart. Get the recipe below!
