Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade


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!

Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade | Cooking Classy

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!


Save this recipe because you need to try it at least once this summer while all those gorgeous, vibrantly flavored fresh raspberries are in season.
