Raspberry Pink Lemonade

~ INGREDIENTS ~


2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice
6 cups water (divided)
2 cups sugar
1 bag of frozen raspberries
a handful of fresh mint leaves
heart-shaped ice cubes

mint, lemon slices, & fresh raspberries 
for garnish, optional


DIRECTIONS

1. Squeeze 2 cups of lemon juice, (roughly 15-20 lemons.) Strain out any seeds, and add in 4 cups of cold water. Chill in the fridge.

2. Make a raspberry-mint simple syrup. In a small sauce pan, combine 1/2 the bag of frozen raspberries, a handful of mint leaves, 2 cups of sugar, and the remaining 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil, and remove from heat once sugar is dissolved. Run through a sieve to strain out mint leaves and raspberry seeds. 

3. Pour the raspberry simple syrup into the lemon-water mixture. Refrigerate until very cold.

4. Serve with lots of ice, fresh raspberries, mint, and a lemon slice.

5. Share with your Valentine, enjoy!
