Pink-lemonade-436

Homemade lemonade is the ultimate thirst quencher and can be thrown together in no time. Turn it into an impressive drink by garnishing with lemon, raspberry and mint.

Method:

✦ Zest and juice the lemons. Place 180g of the raspberries in a tall jug, add enough water to cover and blend with a hand blender.

✦ Mix the lemon juice and zest, sugar and puréed raspberries with the boiling water.

✦ Leave the mixture to cool, then pour it through a sieve into a large jug (using a wooden spoon to push the liquid through).

✦ Top the lemonade with the remaining raspberries and stir. Serve in glasses filled with ice.

Ingredients:

Serves 6

9 unwaxed lemons

200g fresh raspberries

220g caster sugar

1.5 litres boiling water

Ice cubes, to serve
