Summer Time Drink

I live in an area with a lot of wineries. Many of the wineries here make fruit wines such as cherry, peach and pear because we have so many orchards in the area too.  Recently on a trip to visit our favorite winery - they shared a recipe for Cherry Lemonade Wine.

This past weekend, I made burgers, corn on the cob and served some Cherry Lemonade Wine with it. It was delish! So dangerous though because it almost tastes like just a cherry limeade instead of wine.

I halved this recipe for just the 2 of us. But if you have more than 2 people you will need the full recipe. You will go through even this full recipe - quickly.

Cherry Lemonade Wine

2 bottles of cherry wine
12 oz can of frozen lemonade (the frozen concentrate)

Combine lemonade and cherry wine. Don't add water - you are using the wine in place of the water. Add ice, orange slices or other fruit such as blueberries.  

We liked that the ice kind of watered it a little bit because it cut some of the tartness.  But if you want the full strength of the lemonade then make ice cubes with the mixture before hand and use those in it.
