If you’d like to make the syrup beforehand and freeze it, you can mix it with the lemon juice and water the morning you want to serve it.

🔍 FAQs

Can I use another fruit?

Sure! If you’re using something less sweet, increase the sugar a bit.

Is fresh or bottled lemon juice best for homemade lemonade?

Fresh has a much brighter flavor, but it’s expensive and a hassle. Bottled is fine!

👩🏻‍🍳 Expert tips

  • Adjust your tartness/sweetness by adjusting the amount of sugar you put into it. Taste as you go to get to your perfect preference.
  • Switch it up with some blackberries instead of raspberries. Just increase the sugar to 1 1/4 cups.
  • Use frozen raspberries. Sometimes frozen is much cheaper than fresh raspberries in the store, and they work just as great!
  • Avoid the seeds! Raspberries do have small seeds, and if that is something you don’t prefer, you can easily press the raspberries through a fine-mesh strainer.
  • Use a citrus juicer to juice your lemon. This will save your fingers!
