{This is just a little "spin off" of my PoeFam blog that is a home for my domestic attempts...recipes, house stuff and more! It's named after my mom's mom, Miriam Elizabeth Davis...better known as "Gackey!" She was a lovely lady and oh so domestic. So, follow me as I try to fill her shoes...or, better yet, wear her apron!}

Better than Sonic!

I made this yummy treat for the 4th and it was a hit for the whole fam! So much better than Sonic!...
Homemade Cherry Lemonade

1 cup hot water
4 cups ice cold water
3/4 cup sugar
3 large lemons, squeezed (roughly 1/2 cup juice)
maraschino cherries
1/2 cup maraschino cherry juice
36 oz. lemon lime soda
Place 1 cherry in each section of 2 plastic ice trays. Fill trays with lemon lime soda and freeze. Pour sugar and hot water into a 2 quart pitcher, stir to dissolve sugar. Add remaining water, cherry juice, lemon juice and lemon lime soda. Stir and chill. Pour cold lemonade over cherry ice cubes and serve.
