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.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 6 servings
- 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.
