Preparation

  1. First, make the Cherry Syrup. Heat the cherries and water in a small saucepan over medium heat to a simmer. Allow to simmer 10 minutes.
  2. While the cherries and water are simmering, mash the cherries to release more flavor.
  3. Remove from heat and strain the cherries through a fine-mesh sieve. Use the back of a wooden spoon to remove as much liquid from the cherries as possible.
  4. Stir in stevia. Cherry Syrup may be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 1 week.
  5. For each serving of Cherry Soda: pour 3/4 cup club soda into a glass.
  6. Top with 1/4 cup Cherry Syrup and stir to combine.
