It’s fun to watch the lemonade turn pink as the berry ice cubes melt in the glass


24 fresh raspberries
1 can frozen berry juice mix
2 quarts water
1 1/3 cup sugar
1 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
8 lemon slices


Pour a can of berry juice concentrate into a pitcher. Add water according to package directions. Stir with a spoon until well mixed. Pour the mixture into two ice cube trays. Add a raspberry to each section of the ice cube tray. Place trays in the freezer to make berry ice cubes.

In a large pot, mix 2 quarts of water with 1 1/3 cups of sugar. Stir the mixture and bring to a boil. When the mixture is boiling, reduce heat to simmer and cook until the sugar is dissolved. This should take about two minutes. Remove pot from the heat. Using a fine sieve, strain the lemon juice into the water/sugar mixture. Place in the refrigerator to chill. When you’re ready to serve the chilled lemonade, place a lemon slice in each tall glass. Fill each glass with raspberry ice cubes and pour the lemonade over the top.
