I have a raspberry lemonade recipe obsession. Even though technically it’s supposed to be fall, and everything is *supposed* to taste like pumpkin spice, I thought we might want to have a little more variety in the mix. You know, for those of use who are not quite ready to let go of the summer.
I’m not ready.
So if you want to taste the sparkly, tart flavors of summer (any time of year!) get an empty glass…
some ice, a can of any sparkling water (I used lemon), and mix up a quick batch of my lemon raspberry syrup!
My whole life might be centered around this flavor combo right now. And I’m OK with that!

First: fill your glass with about 1/4 cup of lemon raspberry syrup. Toss in a couple of lemon slices if you want to be fancy. And then fill your glass with ice.
Then pour sparkling water over the whole thing like this.
P.S. Thanks for bearing with me while I learn food photography. It’s tricky.
And here she is: a lovely sparkly raspberry lemonade! Give it a stir or two and taste- adjust the sweetness to just how you like it, and drink up!
SO much tastier and better for you than the sugary-artificial-flavor-and-color-mixes that you get even at restaurants. This is the amazing flavor of REAL raspberries!
Look at those beauties floating around in there.
Serve or hide in the laundry room and savor a few more fleeting moments of summer.
