Prep Time 10minutes
Cook Time 2minutes
Total Time 12minutes
Servings 8cups of lemonade
1cup Fresh Lemon Juice(~ 6 large lemons)
2TbspLime Juice(~ 1/2 lime)
Lemon Slices, Raspberries, & Fresh Mint Leaves for garnish
Add the raspberries, half the lemon juice, lime juice, sugar, and vanilla extract to a blender or food processor. Blend the mixture together until incorporated and the sugar has completely dissolved, about 2-3 minutes.
Strain the mixture into a pitcher with a fine mesh strainer to separate the raspberries seeds and pulp from the juice.
Add the water and the rest of the lemon juice into the pitcher and stir until combined.
Pour into cups and serve with ice cubes. Garnish with a lemon slice, a few fresh raspberries, and a sprig of mint.
Store in the refrigerator for up to one week.
Adding the sugar into the blender with the raspberries and lemon juice in Step 1 WILL add a bit of froth to your lemonade. If you prefer your raspberry lemonade froth-free, omit the sugar in Step 1 and add it to the lemonade in Step 3. Note that this will require quite a bit more stirring to completely dissolve the sugar.
