Homemade Raspberry Lemonade
I know I’m ready for a fun, warm, and busy summer. We are making our plans now, what about you? What fun things and places are you going this summer?
We have been having some barbecue’s and healthy, delicious salad’s. Getting into the spirit of SUMMER! We’re loving it! Today I’m sharing one of my favorite drinks, Raspberry Lemonade! An ice cold glass of Raspberry Lemonade is the perfect summertime refreshment. My grandchildren always love a glass of homemade lemonade or raspberry lemonade. I think they love it more because I make it for them, so it’s a special treat. If they get to help squeeze the lemons, better yet. Kids love to help in the kitchen, don’t they. I have found that even the pickiest eater, likes things he or she has had a hand in making.
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 cups water
- 3 lemons
- 1 cup raspberries
- 2 cups cold water
- Simple syrup is easy to make, just bring to boil water and sugar and stir till sugar is dissolved completely. Remove from heat and let cool. (You can make up the simple sugar ahead of time and have in the refrigerator).
- Squeeze lemons into a bowl, trying to keep the seeds out. Place juice from lemon’s into the cooled simple syrup and mix well.
- Blend raspberries in a Ninja or blender and add to lemonade mixture. Then add to cold water and stir. Pour over a glass of ice. Add a thin slice of lemon to the glass and serve.
