Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade

05.19.2015

Yes it’s that time of year! Time to enjoy warm days outside, calm days at the sunlit beach, or just to relax in your backyard – lying a hammock as you bask in the warmth of the sun on your skin, while enjoying long sips from of tall glass of this ice cold Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade. There’s my ideal summer, now I just need that comfy hammock with an extra soft and plush pillow. But for now, at least I have this irresistibly refreshing fresh raspberry lemonade!

I love lemonade lately (yes I still have one more lemonade recipe to share). I love it’s balance of sweet and tart and when you use fresh fruit it makes a world of difference. None of that bottled lemon juice that has been sitting on the shelf for months.

I keep thinking I need to do a lemonade stand with my kids and I want to sell real deal lemonade like this –  for those one or two kind people that actually stop (memories as a kid :). Imagine their surprise when they think they are just being nice and they’re going to pretend to enjoy that glass of overly sweet Kool Aid, when suddenly they get something like this instead. Well worth the 50 cents!

  • Hada: Hi, I was wondering can you make this before hand and let it sit in the refrigerator until dinner time? September 2, 2017 at 10:32am Reply

    • Jaclyn: A few hours before but the longer it rests the flatter it will be so I wouldn’t make it too far in advance. September 2, 2017 at 9:19pm Reply

  • Jaiden: How much does it make in one serving? Because me and my partner are doing this thing at school called IDU where you and your partner have to make a product and sell it and we were thinking on making this, also, we are planning on putting it into a 4L glass pitcher with a nozzle. But we need to know how much it makes first. Please reply!!!! June 13, 2017 at 8:39am Reply

    • Jaclyn: Sorry I don’t have the exact measurement by based of adding up the recipe it should be about 8 cups. Hope that helps and I hope you love it! June 13, 2017 at 6:19pm Reply
