About The Recipe

There is nothing that I love more than a glass of lemonade. Classic, frozen, flavored… whatever! It’s the perfect way to cool down on hot summer days.

This lemonade was actually inspired by that love + a need to use up some raspberries I found in the back of the refrigerator. It truly is a perfect match!

A mix of sour lemon, sweet fresh raspberries, and some simple syrup? It’s SO easy.

As a kid, I would always get the little lemonade packets in the grocery store and mix it into a bottle of water. Sure, it was good… but what was I really drinking? To this day, I still have no clue!
