How do I make a tart cherry spritzer with cherry concentrate?
Start by grabbing the glass you plan on drinking this spritzer out of. Pour tart cherry juice concentrate into it. Follow that with your favorite sparkling water (I recommend plain or citrus), and then squeeze lime juice into it. Stir and you're good to go!
- Use plain sparkling water or citrus flavored for this drink.
- Play around with proportions, want it extra cherry-ey? Add just a bit more tart cherry concentrate. Squeeze in as much lime juice as you'd like.
- Is it a bit too tart for you? Add a bit of sugar to your tart cherry juice spritzer to make the perfect tart cherry mocktail.

This is my kind of drink. I grew up in Poland and tart cherries were very popular there. I actually prefer them over the sweet cherries. This summer I got super excited when I found tart cherries on my local farmers market. They are so good!
yay! they definitely taste different, but I'm with you! I love tart flavors
I had no idea about the health benefits of tart cherries - thank you for sharing!
