I made this lemonade on a whim this weekend while my husband and son worked hard in the yard. My husband is crazy about homemade lemonade and declared this type of berry to be his new favorite. I have to agree!

Homemade lemonade is always exciting. Sweet, brightly colored berry syrup makes this lemonade very special. It is also surprisingly simple to do. The hardest part is squeezing the lemons. Fortunately, that is a job that my 3-year-old son is more than willing to take on. This lemonade is perfect for parties and summer vacations. It looks beautiful and a bit classy with some frozen berries in each glass!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 cup of sugar, depending on how sweet you like it
  • 1.5 cups frozen mixed berries
  • .5 water
  • ice

Instructions

  • In a saucepan over medium-high heat, combine sugar, frozen berries, and 1/2 cup water. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil, cook for about 10 minutes, until the berries soften and burst.

  • Pour the syrup mixture into a blender and mix gently until smooth. Place 2 cups of ice in a pitcher or measuring cup. Place a fine mesh strainer on the ice and strain the berry mixture (to catch all the small seeds) on the ice to cool down quickly.

  • Combine the ice / syrup mixture, lemon juice, and 3 cups of cold water in a jug. Stir to combine and add more water if necessary. Enjoy!
