We made some lovely, refreshing raspberry lemonade today!

I had seen the post from Happy Hooligans on making lemonade and I thought it looked delicious.
As one of the things I wanted to do with the children this summer was make Lemonade we decided to follow their recipe but make some changes of our own.
The idea had come to me when we picked fresh fruit recently, but as we didn’t have any fresh raspberries, and our local shop didn’t have any fresh ones in stock we used tinned raspberries.

The ingredients for our lemonade were simple:

1 cup sugar

5-6 cups water

4 large lemons

1 tin raspberries

Here is how we made it:

1.Firstly we measured out the cup of sugar and one cup of water. Place these in a saucepan and then mummy heated them up to make a syrup.

2. Next we squeezed the lemons.wpid-wp-1408481428582.jpeg

3. Then we liquidised the raspberries.wpid-wp-1408481418123.jpeg

4. We sieved the lemon juice and raspberries into a large bowl, to remove all the pips and pith.wpid-wp-1408481409724.jpeg

5. Finally we added the syrup and the extra water.

Keep chilled and serve with ice.

It makes a delicious, refreshing drink.

For other flavours of lemonade, why not try substituting the raspberries with strawberries, blueberries or cherries.
