How to make Raspberry Lemonade

  • Freeze the raspberries for 2 hours.
  • Squeeze the lemons to create 4 cups of lemon juice.
  • Puree the raspberries in a blender for easier mixing.
  • Mix the sugar with three cups of water or vodka/tequila depending on your choice. This will form the sweetener syrup for the lemonade.
  • Add the lemon juice to the raspberry puree in the blender.
  • Add the sugar syrup to the raspberry and lemon mixture. Blend in the mint leaves and ice cubes. Keep tasting to make sure that the mix is the right amount of sweet. The ice cubes will also dilute the mixture so add enough sugar and fruit.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Serving

Add fresh raspberries or attach a slice of lemon to the glass before serving. If you used tequila you can line the glass with salt to make a margarita.

Trivia about Lemonade

  • The first-ever record of lemonade being made was found in Egypt but the drink itself probably came from Asia. The Far East is where lemons have originated from and that’s why sweetened lemon water was popular in China, Myanmar, and India.
  • Persian poet named Nasir-I-Khusraw was one of the first people to record medieval Egypt’s version of lemonade.
  • Lemonade was exported from Egypt and started becoming really popular in Europe. Due to increasing popularity, it gave rise to Compagnie de Limonadiers in France during the 1600s. These were street vendors who sold lemonade through tanks strapped to their backs.
  • In India, lemonade means a blend of water, lemon, and sugar while in Australia and England it has come to mean lemon-flavored carbonated fizzy drinks like Sprite.
  • In the Middle East, lemonade is usually taken with mint.
