Raspberry Lemonade

Summer means more outside time which calls for refreshing summer drinks.  How is weather on the other side of the world?  Here in NJ, we have 90 degrees for the past few days. So today I am bringing an easy summer drink, Raspberry Lemonade using simple ingredients which usually are easily available in every household.  It can't get easier than this.  You can replace raspberries to whichever fruit you have in the berry family. 

DSC_4483Love the summers when you can enjoy salads, summer coolers, and grilling.  I love it, how about you all?  Sunshine just puts a smile on my face, I just hate gloomy weather which depresses me.


I made this for Parvathy's drink collective who blogs at crackelandtemper.ca.  When she tagged me on this collective post, I thought this is a very good opportunity to add another drink recipe to my collection.

Ingredients:

  • juice of 3-4 lemons
  • 7 tbsp of sugar
  • 5 cups of water
  • ice cubes
  • mint leaves for garnishing
  • frozen raspberries

Directions:

In a small pan, add sugar and a cup of water.  Heat it until the sugar is dissolved completely to make simple syrup.  Let it cool down and then pour the syrup it into the pitcher.

Squeeze out the juice from the lemons directly into the pitcher.  Add the remaining 4 cups of water along with ice cubes.  Also add the raspberries to the mixture.

Raspberries will give it a pink shade. Adjust the sweetness and tartness as per your taste.  If you want to make it sparkling then you can add sprite to it also.
