    Hard Raspberry Lemonade

    Truth be told, I don’t drink very much, in fact rarely, but once in awhile, it’s so nice to sit and relax with a refreshing cocktail. When I drink though, I want it to taste refreshing and really good. This Raspberry Lemonade is perfect on a warm evening, while sitting on the deck visiting with friends.

    We started by making a Simple Syrup with warm water and Truvia natural sweetener, squeezed lemons for a fresh taste and mashed fresh raspberries to bring out the extra flavor. A little more water and extra Truvia to taste, along with Vodka, and we have Hard Raspberry Lemonade.

    Not only is this Raspberry Lemonade delicious, it’s also made with fewer calories thanks to Truvia natural sweetener. Truvia recently attended Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans, after introducing the exclusive tasting of TRU Cocktails, great tasting, low calorie cocktails sweetened with Truvia.

    Make this Raspberry Lemonade kid friendly simply by leaving out the alcohol. I like to serve it in mason jar mugs with a few raspberries for garnish.

    10 Hard lemonade recipes you need to try before the end of summer

    Lemonade has been in your summer memories for likely as long as you’ve been running around outside when the weather got warm. Sweet sugar mixed with tart lemon juice over ice meant that summer was in full swing. You had it at fairs and festivals and family gatherings, but now that you’re an adult, you have the luxury of making that refreshing summertime drink extra special by sneaking in some of your favorite booze.

    Here are 10 hard lemonade recipes you have to sip before the end of summer:

    Yes. I think this drink needs some sweetness. Raspberries can be sweet-tart and lemon is more sour than sweet in most cases. So adding a little sugar helps round out the flavors.

    Plus, the granulated sugar helps to macerate or extract more juice from the raspberries. So be sure to add that in during the muddle for the best effect.

    TIP: Taste your berries first. Luckily my berries were quite sweet so I only used a couple of tablespoons of sugar. You can sweeten to your taste.

    Homemade Lemonade

    Heat 4 cups sugar with 6 cups of water in a medium saucepan until it's dissolved. Set this in the fridge to cool.

    Chill the lemon juice if you have the time.

    Pour the lemon juice into a large vat. Pour in 3/4 of the syrup, then top off the vat with ice. Pour in 8 cups of water (give or take), stir it around, then give it a taste. Add more syrup if it needs sweetness, or more water if it needs dilution.

    Add 2 cups raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, or sliced strawberries to the lemonade for different flavors.

    Make hard lemonade by adding 2 cups light rum or tequila to the lemonade. (Naughty! Adults only!)

    Making a big ol&rsquo batch of lemonade is one of my favorite summertime rituals, and I&rsquod be seriously lost and forlorn in the wilderness if something happened to the worldwide lemon crop one year and I wasn&rsquot able to make it. No mix or frozen concentrate can possibly give you the same fresh lemony flavor as the real stuff plus, when you make your own, you can control the level of sweetness to suit your tastes. If you like things a little sweeter, you can up the syrup if you like things so tart, your face contorts&hellipyou can ease up on the syrup a bit.

    And a plus: Your hands will smell like lemons all day!

    4 cups sugar
    2 dozen lemons

    A few hours (or a whole day) in advance, make a sugar syrup by combining 6 cups of water&hellip

    With the sugar in a large saucepan.

    Heat it over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Set the syrup aside and let it cool, or store it in the fridge, covered, until you&rsquore ready to make the lemonade. It&rsquoll be slightly thick and viscous.

    I&rsquom obsessed with the word viscous right now. I apologize in advance.

    Juice all the lemons into a pitcher.

    This will exhaust you and make you want to take a nap.

    Then pour it through a fine mesh strainer to strain out all the pulp.

    Smush it all around to get out every last bit of juice.

    If you have time, refrigerate the juice until it&rsquos chilled&hellipbut you don&rsquot have to.

    Pour the juice into a serving vat or tub&hellip

    Then pour in about 2/3 to 3/4 of the syrup. Set the remaining syrup aside.

    Just before serving the lemonade, fill the vat with ice&hellip

    Then pour in 8 cups (or so) of cold water.

    Stir it around until the juice and water are well combined.

    Then be sure to give it a taste. If it seems overly tart, add in the rest of the sugar syrup. If it seems too strong overall, add in another 2 cups of water. Don&rsquot be afraid to play with the quantities to suit your taste&hellip

    And keep in mind that the ice itself will add some water content.

    When it&rsquos totally perfect, serve it up!

    Nothing better in the world.

    Both the sugar syrup and the lemon juice can be prepared the day before, then stored in the fridge.

    Add 2 cups raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, or sliced strawberries to the lemonade for different flavors.
