Sparkling Cherry Lemonade

Oopsie. I made this stuff and then got ADDICTED. Fully addicted. If I could drink sparkling cherry lemonade all day every day I totally would but I have a feeling doctors would frown on that sort of thing. I had been wanting to try to use our SodaStream to make some fun concoctions for a while and this one paid off! It must be said, they don’t recommend using it for anything other than water but I did a bunch of research and decided to take a walk on the wild side. Also, I have to admit that this recipe took a couple of fails before it worked well! So learn from my mistakes, lovelies, so that you don’t end up with sparkling cherry lemonade all over your kitchen. 😉

Watch our video and then read a couple of detailed tips down below! Cheers! xoxo

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup water plus about 1 cup water
  • 2/3 cup fresh lemon juice (about 6-7 lemons)
  • 1 Tbsp maraschino cherry juice
  • maraschino cherries for garnish

Step 1: Combine sugar and 2/3 cup water in a pot and place on the stove over medium high heat. Heat until the sugar dissolves completely to create a simple syrup; set aside to cool.

Step 2: Once cool, combine simple syrup, lemon juice, 1 cup water, and maraschino cherry juice in your Soda Stream bottle. Note: We recommend leaving a bit more space in your bottle than usual; leave about 1/2″ of space below the liquid line.

Step 3: Place your bottle on the Soda Stream and add carbonation. Note: We recommend only depressing the carbonation button for about 2 seconds. Otherwise the liquids in the bottle will overflow.

Step 4: Allow the fizz to settle in the bottle before removing. Pour over ice, add a cherry for garnish, and enjoy.
