You're about to enjoy some "berry" sweet sipping! Raspberries turn lemonade into a very rosy beverage.
Updated February 27, 2005

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice (about 4 lemons)
  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • 1 container (10 ounces) frozen raspberries in syrup, thawed
  • 3/4 cup water

Steps

  • 1
    Mix sugar and 1/2 cup water in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring once, until sugar is dissolved. Cool to room temperature.
  • 2
    Mix cooled sugar syrup, the lemon juice and 3 1/2 cups water in 2-quart nonmetal pitcher. Place raspberries in strainer over small bowl to drain (do not press berries through strainer). Reserve berries for making ice cubes. Stir raspberry liquid into lemon mixture; refrigerate.
  • 3
    Spoon raspberries evenly into 12 sections of ice-cube tray. Divide 3/4 cup water evenly among sections with raspberries. Freeze about 2 hours or until firm. Serve lemonade over ice cubes.

  • Frozen lemon juice from concentrate, thawed, can be used in place of the fresh lemon juice.
  • Heating the sugar with a little water makes a syrup that is easily dissolved in the lemonade.
  • Before juicing the lemons, use a citrus zester to cut thin strips of peel to add to each glass of lemonade.
