Sparkling Raspberry and Blackberry Lemonade Recipe



There is nothing like a refreshing glass of lemonade on a hot summer day. Today was one of those days and since I'm feeling kinda hot from being sunburned, this lemonade was the perfect treat. My niece turned 13 today and she wanted to make something special so we decided to make this very tasty lemonade. Everyone loved it, and it would be such a great addition to a party, BBQ or picnic! You can also try different berry or fruit combinations to change it up every time you make it! I would also like to say thanks to my sister Shannon who took these beautiful photos for this post! Have fun and enjoy!!


Sparkling Raspberry and Blackberry Lemonade

What you need:
6 cups fresh blackberries and raspberries
1/2 cup sugar
1- 59 ounce bottle Simply Lemonade or 7 1/2 cups homemade lemonade
4 cups lemon lime soda

Directions:
In a blender, blend berries, sugar and 1 cup of the lemonade until smooth. Press the berry mixture through a wire mesh strainer, into a large pitcher to remove the seeds. Add the remaining lemonade and lemon lime soda. Stir and serve with lemon slices.
