Old Fashioned Pink Lemonade
Do as I did and add a shot of homemade limoncello or enjoy it straight. A shot of vodka would also give it a kick.
3 cups fresh lemon juice (about 16 lemons)*
12 cups of water
3 cups natural cane sugar
Combine the sugar and 3 cups of water in saucepan and bring to a boil.
Simmer for a few minutes until sugar dissolves.
Add raspberries and simmer 1 minute more.
Turn off heat and and let raspberries seep for 30 minutes or so.
Strain the syrup discarding the raspberries (or saving them if you like... they would be delicious with yogurt).Mix the lemon juice, remaining 9 cups of water and raspberry syrup in a pitcher and chill for at least 1 hour.
Serve over ice on a hot summer day.
*I used a power juicer extract my juice so if you are juicing by hand you may need more lemons to achieve 3 cups.
