Sparkling Berry Lemonade
- Makes: 10 servings
- Total Time 20 mins
This fizzy pink drink is a kid-friendly, real-fruit alternative to bottled pop. For an adults-only version, add two tablespoons of rum, tequila or citrus-infused vodka to each serving or 1 to 11/4 cups to the batch.
fresh or frozen unsweetened berries, such as raspberries, sliced strawberries and/or blackberries
frozen pink lemonade, lemonade or limeade concentrate, thawed
club soda, chilled
Lemon and/or lime slices
Fresh raspberries, sliced strawberries and/or blackberries (optional)
- In a blender, puree the 2 cups berries and the water. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve set over a bowl, forcing puree through the sieve with a spoon or rubber spatula. Transfer to a 2-quart pitcher. Add the lemonade concentrate and sugar, stirring until sugar dissolves. Chill, covered, until ready to serve.
- Before serving, stir lemonade, then slowly pour in the club soda. Pour sparkling lemonade into ice-filled glasses. Garnish with lemon slices and, if desired, additional berries.
