Just the other night, Jason and I were packing up some boxes for our move to LA when I came across a brand new cherry pitter that I’ve never used before. It may have been sitting in our cabinet for a year now, so instead of packing it up with the rest of our kitchen stuff, I decided to christen it with this amazing cherry lemonade.

Now if you’ve been following Damn Delicious for awhile now, you’ll know that I’ve made quite a few different kinds of lemonades – strawberry lemonade, blueberry lemonade, raspberry peach lemonade – you name it. Yes, I may just have a thing for lemonades. But out of all the lemonades, this is by far the easiest lemonade I’ve ever made.
