If you follow me on Instagram (and I really hope you do!), you might have caught me raving about this homemade raspberry lemonade. I’ve been having fun lately making more of my own drinks at home and this one just might be my favorite. While I normally choose iced tea or coffee, I would never turn down a freshly squeezed lemonade. And bonus, this one is flavored with fresh raspberries! There is nothing not to love about this recipe. My three boys went gaga over this lemonade and my 8 year old said that out of 10 stars he gave it a 100. I think that means it was a success! I
- 7 cups cold water
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup fresh lemon juice
- ½ cup raspberry simple syrup
- lemons, raspberries, mint for garnish
- Stir together water, sugar, lemon juice and simple syrup in large pitcher. Add ice, lemon slices, fresh or frozen raspberries and mint if desired for garnish.
- Refrigerate or serve immediately.
If you’ve never made simple syrup before, it is very easy and so delicious with just water, sugar and raspberries.
You can get my raspberry simple syrup recipe on my baking blog, Oh My! Sugar High.
You can always add more water (or less sugar) if you prefer your lemonade a little less sweet. I did find that it seemed to get a bit sweeter as it sat.
Cheers to refreshing summer drinks!
