Simple Raspberry Lemonade

I have quite a thing for lemonade. When it’s hot outside, it’s all I want to drink! It’s cold, refreshing, and so delicious. As much as I love a good basic lemonade recipe, this raspberry lemonade is over-the-top amazing! It’s so incredibly flavorful, sweet and tangy, and super refreshing. Best of all, it’s easy to make in advance, which means you can make it at the beginning of the week and enjoy fresh raspberry lemonade all week long.

How To Make Raspberry Lemonade

This raspberry lemonade starts with a delicious homemade raspberry sauce. It has only five ingredients and takes just a few minutes to make. As great as it is in this lemonade, it’s also delicious as a topping for waffles or ice cream (or just eating out of the jar with a spoon).

Once your raspberry sauce is finished and cooling down, you’ll make the fresh squeezed lemonade, then combine the two into a delicious drink. The recipe makes enough for about eight servings, and you could easily double or triple it for a party.
