4 cups of freshly squeezed lemon juice from 8-12 lemons, strained
8 oz raspberries, plus extra for serving
5 cups water
1 cup sugar
Lemon wedges for serving
Fresh mint for serving
Combine the raspberries and half cup of the lemon juice in a blender.
Purée until smooth, then pass the mixture through a fine sieve into a large bowl to strain out the seeds (the fastest way to force it through is by pressing a ladle against the strainer in a circular motion).
Add the remaining lemon juice, water, and sugar to the bowl and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
Taste, then add more sugar, lemon juice or water if necessary (keep in mind that ice cubes will water it down).
Pour into glasses with ice cubes and garnish with lemon wedges, raspberries and fresh mint, if desired.
The lemonade will keep in the fridge for a few days.
Sit back and enjoy a glass of this pink raspberry lemonade during the summer months and be sure to share with your friends!
