Hello everyone I hope you’re doing great! Summer always calls for fresh drinks right? So how about a Blackberry Lemonade that tastes so good and is so refreshing?
I think most of you know by now that I like to twist my recipes. That’s why I made this blackberry lemonade that is a simple lemonade recipe with some fresh blackberry syrup that tastes heavenly! I don’t know about you but blackberries are my second favorite berries after strawberries so having them now in season makes so happy!
This drink recipe is so simple and easy to make and is better served with some ice and extra fresh blackberries because why not.
- 3 cups fresh blackberries
- 1 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 cup sugar or dry sweetener of choice
- 2 tsp lemon zest
- 7 cups water divided
In a blender, blend your blackberries until they are like a puree. Drain them with a strainer to discard the liquid only. Use a fork to press the blackberries against the strainer to extract the maximum amount of liquid.
In a saucepan over medium heat, place 1 cup of water with the the blackberry juice, sugar and lemon zest. Stir until sugar is dissolved. When it starts to boil, simmer on low heat for 10 mins. Remove from heat and let cool.
Meanwhile, place the lemon juice and remaining 6 cups of water in a big jug. Add the blackberry syrup that you just made and stir everything together.
Refrigerate. Serve cold and enjoy!
