For the Raspberry Sauce:

  • 12 ounces  fresh raspberries
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon corn starch
  • 2 tablespoons water

For the Lemonade:

  • 1 1/2 cups lemon juice from about 7 large lemons
  • 1 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 8 cups water


  • To make the raspberry sauce, add the raspberries, lemon juice, and sugar to a medium sauce pan.
  • Heat over medium heat, stirring frequently to break up the raspberries, until the mixture comes to a simmer.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the corn starch and water.
  • Pour the corn starch mixture into the pot, stir to combine, and cook 2-3 minutes, until thickened.
  • Remove from heat and let cool completely.

  • Bring mixture to a boil, stirring often until sugar is completely dissolved (about 5 minutes).
  • Allow mixture to come to room temperature and chill for 1 hour.
  • In a large pitcher, combine juice from lemons, the remaining seven cups of water and the sugar water mixture.
  • Stir well and chill.
  • To assemble, spoon two tablespoons of raspberry sauce into the bottom of a glass.
