Are you looking for a refreshing drink to beat the summer heat? This homemade raspberry lemonade is the perfect combination of sweet and tart flavors, sure to satisfy your thirst and impress your guests.

  • 6 cups (1.4 L) water, divided
  • 8 oz (226 g) raspberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 cup (200 g) granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (236 ml) lemon juice, freshly squeezed

Recommended Equipment:

  • Small saucepan
  • Pitcher
  • Fine mesh strainer


  1. Prepare the Raspberry Syrup:
    • Combine 1 cup (236 ml) of water, raspberries, and granulated sugar in a small saucepan over medium-low heat.
    • Stir frequently until the sugar is dissolved and the raspberries release their juices. The raspberries will become very soft and should break into pieces.
  2. Strain the Mixture:
    • Pour the raspberry mixture through a fine mesh strainer into your pitcher. Use a separate bowl if it's not easy to strain directly into the pitcher.
    • Use a spoon or spatula to press as much juice through the strainer as possible. Discard the remaining seeds.
  3. Mix the Lemonade:
    • Add the freshly squeezed lemon juice and the remaining 5 cups (1.2 L) of water to the pitcher.
    • Stir well to combine.
  4. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Serve the raspberry lemonade immediately over ice or chill it well before serving.
    • Garnish with lemon wedges, if desired.
    • Always stir the lemonade before serving to ensure the flavors are well mixed.


  • For a sparkling twist, substitute some of the water with sparkling water.
  • Adjust the sweetness by adding more or less sugar to suit your taste.
  • Fresh raspberries provide the best flavor, but frozen raspberries work well too.

This homemade raspberry lemonade is refreshing and vibrantly colored, a beautiful addition to any table. Enjoy this delightful drink with friends and family, and make every sip a moment to savor!
