Ingredients

  • 4 cups warm water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2-3 cups fresh raspberries juiced or pureed
  • 8 lemons juiced (5 if using a juicer)
  • Lemon slices and extra raspberries for garnish

Instructions

  • Pour the water into a large serving pitcher. Add the sugar and stir until dissolved.
  • Add the raspberry and lemon juices and mix well. Add lemon slices and extra raspberries and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour. Serve over ice.

Notes

  • Consider swapping raspberries out for fresh strawberries or blueberries (juiced or pureed) for blueberry or strawberry lemonade.
  • The water used in the recipe should be warm in order to dissolve the sugar.
  • Don't skip the chill time! Since the water added to the pitcher is warm, so it will need some time in the fridge before serving.
  • If pureeing the fruit, push through a fine mesh strainer to remove pulp.
  • Frozen raspberries can be used in place of fresh raspberries!
  • If using a juicer for the lemons, use 5-6 lemons instead of 8 to avoid an overly tart end result. When using a hand juicer, 8 lemons work perfectly!
