sparkling sweet cherry lemonade

I recently hosted a small afternoon gathering of a few friends and wanted to serve a unique and sweet beverage . . . and Sparking Sweet Cherry Lemonade made the menu!

Easy to prepare, bright in color, sweet to the taste . . . . Sparkling Sweet Cherry Lemonade would make a great addition to any gathering, whether simple or extravagant.
