2 lb fresh sour cherries* (1 qt), stemmed
Blend cherries (including pits) in a blender at low speed until skins have broken down enough to brightly color liquid (some of pits will be coarsely chopped). Pour through a sieve into a 2-quart pitcher, pressing and discarding solids. Add lemon juice and sugar (to taste), stirring until sugar is dissolved.
In glass of crushed ice add 1/2 cup cherry lemonade and top off with sparkling water.
