Cool Treat for Hot Days - Cherry Lime Ices

The kitchen is getting a lot of action these days! Today I'm sharing a recipe that I have been making a lot this summer and nice cool alternative to ice cream and popsicles.

Cherry Lime Ices:
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
Juice of 8-10 Limes
4 cups of cherries pitted and halved

Make a simple syrup by boiling the sugar and water together until the sugar has melted completely, set aside to cool. Juice your limes and pit and half your cherries (This takes a million years be warned.) toss cherries into lime juice. Mix juice and cooled syrup and let sit in the fridge for at lease one hour. The longer it sits the most the cherry flavor gets mixed in.
Finally put it all in the freezer for a few hours and then enjoy this nice ice-y treat!
