Raspberry Lemonade Recipe

Berry Tempting: Raspberry Lemonade

When hosting a female-centric event like a baby or bridal shower, it's important to offer a special nonalcoholic drink for those who don't sip alcohol. My favorite mocktail? Raspberry lemonade. It's a combination of fresh raspberry syrup, lemon juice, sugar, and water. What I love about this recipe is its adaptability. If it's too sweet, dilute with water. If it's too sour, add more sugar. It's also easy to turn into an alcoholic concoction, all you have to do is add sparkling wine or vodka. Fabulous! Get the recipe I like here.

Raspberry Lemonade Recipe 2010-09-03 17:37:14

Ingredients

  1. 4 cups water
  2. 1 pint (about 2 cups) raspberries, plus more for garnish
  3. 1 3/4 cups sugar
  4. 1 quart store-bought lemonade
  5. Ice, for serving
  6. 1 bottle (750 milliliters) sparkling water

Directions

  1. Bring water, raspberries, and sugar to boil in a large saucepan, stirring occasionally, until sugar dissolves. Reduce heat, and let simmer for 15 minutes. Strain mixture through a fine sieve, pressing gently on berries to release juices; discard solids. Let syrup cool completely.
  2. Combine syrup and lemonade in a large pitcher. Divide among 16 ice-filled glasses. Top each with sparkling water, and vodka if using. Garnish with fresh raspberries.

Serves 16.
