Raspberry Lemonade


I think that this week I am in need of a serious time out with one of these.  Just looking at the picture makes me crave one instantly.  But, seriously, wouldn’t it be nice if I could take the time out rather than my kids sometimes.   I think I might just try it one day.  Of course laying by a pool would be way more fun than locking myself in my room, but hey I’ll take whatever I can get.

This Raspberry Lemonade is Amazing…sometimes a nice cool drink can really brighten up your day.  Of course, this lemonade is great to serve up at all the summer picnics.

You’ll also love this fun printable to serve up your lemonade as a great gift! Cheers to Summer Printable and Recipe Card here!

Fresh Raspberry Lemonade

Ingredients:

1 cup sugar
1 cup of water
1 cup raspberries (plus more for serving if desired)
1 cup fresh lemon juice (8-10 lemons)
lemon slices for serving (optional)

Instructions:

Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil.  Remove from heat and let cool.

Puree raspberries in blender and then push through fine mesh sieve to remove seeds.  Combine the berry puree, the sugar water and lemon juice in a large pitcher.  Add 4 cups cold water.  This will make a strong, tart lemonade.  If you want it less tart add another cup of water.  Serve over ice cubes.  (remember as the ice melts it will dilute the lemonade)

If you want to sugar your glass like the restaurants, rub a cut lemon around the edge of your cup and dip in sugar.
