Raspberry Lemonade

Making your own raspberry lemonade is incredibly easy.

We use raspberries – my absolute favorite – for this recipe, but you can always make the syrup with other fruits. Blackberries, strawberries, peaches, and mangos are some other amazing fruits you can use to make this yummy drink.

For the hotter days of summer, blend up some of this recipe with ice to make the most refreshing frozen raspberry lemonade. Garnish with a slice of lemon on the side and a little bit of mint. Maybe even a mini umbrella! That’ll definitely bring down the temperature a few degrees. 🙂

Adjust for the perfect sweetness with your syrup so you can get a perfect balance. Lemonade is also an amazing base for a fun summer punch.

Homemade Raspberry Lemonade Ingredients 

  • 1½ cups of water for syrup
  • 1½ cups of sugar
  • 2 cups of fresh raspberries
  • 1½ cups of fresh-squeezed lemon juice (10-12 lemons)
  • 4 cups of water
  • Fresh mint, optional garnish

How To Make This Homemade Raspberry Lemonade Recipe

STEP ONE: To start, take a medium-sized pot and pour in the 1½ cups of water, sugar, and fresh raspberries. Bring this to a simmer on medium-high heat. When it starts boiling, stir until the sugar is completely dissolved.


I also like to mash up the raspberries a bit more with my spatula at this step.

STEP TWO: Once the sugar crystals are all gone, turn off the heat and let the syrup cool. Pour the cooled mixture into the blender and blend, blend, blend until it’s all smooth. Pour the content of the blender through a strainer to make sure all the seeds are removed.

STEP THREE: In a pitcher, pour in the lemon juice and water, and add the raspberry simple syrup to your taste and stir.

STEP FOUR: Adjust sweetness with the syrup as needed, and serve your refreshing raspberry lemonade cold.

How To Serve

This drink is also amazing mixed with other drinks. Grab some unsweetened iced tea and mix in some of this raspberry lemonade for the perfect Arnold Palmer.

For the adults, it’s always time for a delicious cocktail made of this healthy, refreshing raspberry lemonade. A splash of vodka or tequila makes for a fun afternoon in the sun.

    Hi! Do you use all of the raspberry simple syrup when adding it to the lemon juice mixture? Or just some of it.
