Sparkling Cherry Juice (from Sour/Tart Cherry Juice Concentrate)
I make tons of this concentrate every cherry season and it lasts me for the greater part of the year. The concentrate will easily freeze and if you like to make things simple (like I prefer) you can use your ice tray to make instant serves ready to go when you want. Just drop a cube into your glass and add your sparkling water and your all set. Easy & yum!
2 pounds sugar
1/2 pint water
Bring the cherry mixture to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Strain liquid into another pan, pressing cherries with a spoon to extract all the liquid, and discard the cherries. Simmer the liquid over low heat until it is syrupy and coats the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and let cool. Pour syrup in a jar and store in the refrigerator.
To serve, place 1 to 2 tablespoons of syrup in each glass, fill glasses with chilled sparkling water and stir to mix.
