Simple Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade Recipe
Now that summer is upon us. (Hooray Northern Ireland weather!) There’s no better place to be. So why not get the feet up in the garden this afternoon with this amazing summer fruit drink that is just to sit and chill with. Or, if you are entertaining friends (perhaps at a barbecue), it provides the perfect refreshment. Enjoy.
12 oz fresh raspberries
1 cup fresh lemon juice, chilled
1/2 cup cold water
1/2 cup granulated sugar (or to taste)
1/2 cup honey
1 liter (33.8 oz) sparkling water or club soda, chilled
Fresh mint and ice, for serving
Place raspberries in a food processor and pulse until well pureed. Force raspberry puree through a fine mesh strainer into a bowl.
In a large pitcher (if you don’t have one large enough you may need two) whisk together water and sugar until sugar has dissolved. Pour in honey and mix until blended. Stir in raspberry mixture and lemon juice then pour in club soda and stir once. Serve with ice and fresh mint.
