Blackberry Lemonade

So lemonade is delicious in summertime, is it not? Here’s a slight variation to the typical lemonade recipe:

Ingredients:

1 pint blackberries (*or you can do a whole carton if you like the tangy, tart taste better in your lemonades)

1/2 lemon (zested)

7 whole lemons (to be squeezed)

1 & 1/2 cups of white sugar

5 cups of water

  1. Juice the lemons. Remove seeds; strain pulp if desired (although I personally think it makes the lemonade yummier!)
  2. Heat sugar and 2 cups of water to boiling & stir to dissolve all of the sugar. Let it cool in the refrigerator for at least half an hour afterward.
  3. Mash up 1 cup blackberries with a fork; you’ll end up with about 1/3 cup of blackberry puree.
  4. Mix lemon juices, sugar water, remaining water (3 cups) & blackberry puree all together! Then refrigerate until it’s chilled.
