This raspberry version is delicious, it looks beautiful and more importantly is so easy to make.
The sugar content is up to you, it really depends on how sour your raspberry and lemons are. But how I fix it, if I feel it is too sweet, just add more water, or I add a glassful of ice, then top up with strawberry lemonade and allow the ice to not only chill your drink, but also dilute it also. So add more or less sugar, that is really up to you and how you like it.
It makes about 6 glasses, so when I have guests over I would make it in a large jug. But if I'm just making it for my kids, what I do rather than make a large jug of it, I pour the mixture without the water into a bottle and my kids make it when they are thirsty and use it like you would cordial, and add water when needed.
I also have recipes for traditional lemonade and a strawberry lemonade. Both delicious.
This is a drink that would look good served up at a party, looks beautiful, tastes even better. Give it a try.
