Raspberry Lemonade

Raspberry Lemonade
As temps heat up, enjoy this iconic spring treat. I prefer this with a nod to Italian sodas – tart with a splash of sparkling water.

In a pitcher, add 1 cup simple syrup, 6 oz fresh raspberries, and 4 cups of water.

Find a juicer, mine is about 48″, very serious and such a sweet boy! Juice 12 lemons and strain juice through fine mesh.

I have since learned if you cut lengthwise, you can get a little juice more for your squeeze.

Add juice to mixture in pitcher.
You may have to add more simple syrup depending on your taste for sweetness.
