Rose and Raspberry Lemonade

It’s time for pretty drinks over ice in mason jars, sunglasses and sunscreen, and sitting outside.

This is how excited we feel about summer.
This drink is summer in a glass. It’s pretty. It’s pink. It’s delicious. It’s easy to make. It’s refreshing. If you don’t have rose water, don’t sweat it, just make the raspberry lemonade. Want to add something different? Add lemon zest. Or mint. Or basil.
I made this with a mix of fresh lemons and Santa Cruz Organics Lemon Juice. I know, I know, making lemonade with concentrate just doesn’t taste right. But when you ain’t got enough time, this is the way to go, and it honestly doesn’t taste like regular lemon concentrates do — I can’t taste the difference between regular lemons and the SC organics.
 
Raspberry Rose Lemonade
5-7 lemons (alternatively, Santa Cruz Organic
 Lemon Juice about half a cup)
1 cup frozen raspberries
1-2 tbsp Rose Water
Blend the lemon juice and raspberries together, and then strain them to get out the seeds. Put the mixture into a large mason jar, or pitcher. Add water to taste, basically making it as sour as you want, and mix. Then add simple syrup and rose water to taste. Mix well, and store in the fridge for up to 1 week.
