Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade
Sparkling raspberry lemonade is the ideal refreshing and celebratory beverage to say, "hello, summer!" Made from scratch with just four simple ingredients.
- 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice from about 10 lemons
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 150 grams fresh raspberries a generous handful
- 2-3 cups sparkling water chilled
In a small saucepan, combine the lemon juice and sugar over medium heat. Let cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is completely dissolved. Transfer to a bowl, pitcher, or large liquid measuring cup, cover, and chill until ready to serve.
While the syrup is chilling, puree the raspberries in a food processor or food mill, or mash them gently with the back of a spoon. If desired, press the berry puree through a fine mesh strainer. (This is not necessary, but does remove the seeds, if you'd rather not have those in your drink.)
To serve, spoon a small amount of the berry puree into each serving glass. Add ice if desired. Pour 2 cups of the sparkling water into the chilled lemon syrup. Taste and add more sparkling water to taste. Pour the lemonade into the glasses and serve immediately.
