What a simple and perfectly refreshing summertime drink this is! Not only is it delicious but pretty when garnished with fresh raspberries. These will be a regular fixture poolside.-01 Aug 2009

One of my most favorite summer cocktails. I like this with cranberry lemonade or Newman's Limeade, too. Noms. This is a definite make-a-large-pitcher drink.-06 Aug 2009


I've been making this since college and it's one of my all time favorite summertime cocktails. It is really good if the vodka is frozen.-06 Aug 2009

Raspberry Lemonade

This sweet and tangy, made from scratch, raspberry lemonade is so refreshing and delicious. Made with fresh raspberries, it&rsquos the perfect treat to enjoy all summer long!

I love serving raspberry lemonade when we&rsquore making Fall Off The Bone Ribs for a Summer BBQ with family and friends. Or mix up a batch of this refreshing drink and have your kids set up a Lemonade Stand in the neighborhood.

Why Make This Recipe

  • A great way to use up any excess summer raspberries.
  • It is soooooooo easy to make entirely of affordable everyday staples.
  • It is easy to double the recipe for a crowd.
  • Prep-ahead ease. Whip up a big batch and chill till needed.
  • Get the kids helping in the kitchen &ndash they love whipping this up.

Recipe Summary

  • ¾ cup fresh raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 ⅓ cups white sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 4 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Place the raspberries and 2 tablespoons of sugar into a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until reduced by about 1/3. Remove from heat, and strain through a sieve to remove the seeds. Set aside to cool.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and 1 1/3 cups of sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each one. Stir in the raspberry sauce and lemon zest until well blended. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt stir into the batter. Cover and refrigerate for about 10 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease two cookie sheets.

Divide the dough into four equal parts. Form each piece of dough into a 12 inch long log shape on a lightly floured surface. Place two logs onto each cookie sheet, and pat down until they are about 3 inches wide. There should be at least 2 inches of space between each log.

Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until firm but not crisp. Remove from the oven, and allow to cool for at least 10 minutes.

Place the biscotti bars on a cutting board, and use a serrated knife to cut into 3/4 inch wide slices. Return the slices to the baking sheets cut side down.

Bake for 8 minutes, then turn the cookies over, and bake for an additional 8 minutes, or until lightly toasted on each side. Cool completely, then store in an airtight container.

Chef Tips

It’s so easy to make this cool and refreshing Raspberry Lemonade, and it’s so delicious. Summer parties or when you’re cooling off poolside are perfect occasions for this beverage.

  • If you want a stronger-tasting lemonade, you can add more lemon juice. If, on the other hand, you prefer a softer lemonade, you have to add more water.
  • When you serve this lemonade, you can add a couple of raspberries to the glass to enhance its flavor.
  • If you don’t have lemons, substitute them with lime.

Thanks to the beautiful weather, I’ve had a lot of fun being outdoors. That means we’ll spend as much time as possible in the backyard. On weekends, I love sitting outside with my family and enjoying a refreshing Raspberry Lemonade.

Can you suggest stores which carry the raspberry
Lemonade with that wonderful pale pink color?

Hi Debra — try Simply Lemonade. They usually have it at Walmart and Target as well as other grocery stores.

Freshly Squeezed!

It’s been forever since I’ve made homemade lemonade. So I thought it was time to pull out one of my favorite kitchen gadgets – my handheld lemon juicer/press. It’s squeezes every last drop out of any citrus you put in it. I love it!

This raspberry lemonade uses both fresh raspberry puree and freshly squeezed lemon juice with the addition of some sugar. I use a special trick to make sure this lemonade is nice and smooth—no grainy sugar granules in this drink!

Pour the lemonade into glasses and serve with fresh raspberries, lemon slices, mint and ice for an extra fancy presentation. You can’t go wrong with a glass of this refreshing drink!

How to make Homemade Raspberry Lemonade

Start with the simple syrup. The syrup needs to cool completely and tastes best after sitting in the fridge for a few hours so the flavor can develop. I like to make mine one day in advance so I just have to assemble the lemonade on the day I want to serve it.

You can use fresh or frozen raspberries for this lemonade. I recommend using frozen raspberries to make the syrup. The frozen ones are harvested when they are perfectly ripe and frozen immediately. They’re sweeter and more flavorful than fresh raspberries which often travel long ways until they get to the supermarkets. But if you get your hands on perfectly ripe and sweet fresh raspberries you can use them, too!

When the simple syrup is cooked strain it to get rid of the seeds, then refrigerate it until you’re ready to assemble the raspberry lemonade.

Assembling the raspberry flavored lemonade is very easy and takes only a few minutes. Combine a few fresh raspberries or blackberries and a handful of mint leaves in a large pitcher. Use a muddler to mash the two together to release the flavor of the mint.

Add the other ingredients, garnish with a few mint leaves, lemon slices, and fresh raspberries and serve over ice cubes. So refreshing!

You can use sparkling water to make the lemonade or if you’re like me and have a sweet tooth make your lemonade with sparkling lemonade for an extra flavor kick. I love to use this sparkling lemonade from San Pellegrino. It tastes like summer!

What you need to make raspberry lemonade

Making raspberry lemonade is very easy: you don’t even need to simmer a raspberry syrup on the stovetop! You’ll simply blend the berries with water and sugar (a genius idea by way of Alex). There’s actually only 3 ingredients required, outside of ice and water. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 8 lemons
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 cup sugar

Raspberry Lemonade Recipe

This Raspberry Lemonade Recipe may have helped a community project move forward, one day, at my home.

You understand, my community-activist husband invited two very important (influential) members of the community to our home to "socialize." I knew the motive . a community project that many people wanted "jump-started."

My husband never seemed to be or become anxious at such meetings. I was always somewhat nervous, not because such guests (who frequent the restaurant) are unkind or totally the most important people I know. That's wrong.

I just hate any tensions or possible tensions among guests. Sometimes business and liquor don't mix. On the other hand, sometimes things work out. This was such an occasion.

So not long after saying, "Hi, how are ya?" etc., my job was to offer beverages.

Since no one at this 5 PM get-together was on-duty, my husband started things off by asking for a Scotch on-the-rocks. Neither of the women wanted a Scotch. One asked me to bring her and the other lady something "refreshing and smooth."

I had just made a vodka raspberry lemonade drink for a friend of mine a couple of days before. She raved about it . so . two more were made and served that day.

Then two more were made and served. Yes, they loved them (fortunately).

And so, after an hour and a half and a couple of raspberry lemonade beverages, an understanding was reached that day. The community project would get done, maybe even fast-tracked.

So here you have a vodka drink recipe that helped get a community building project completed - on time and under budget. What a rarity.

Was this raspberry lemonade recipe the reason the community saw the requested project completed? Probably not . but it makes for an interesting story. :-)

Did you know? The origin of vodka is a contentious. There is little historical material is available.

The first production was either in Poland in the 8th century, or in the area of today's Russia in the late 9th century according to different sources.

According to the Gin and Vodka Association, the first distillery was documented over three hundred years later (1174).
