What’s more summery than berry lemonade? We drank this on our vacation along with fish tacos made from freshly caught salmon. Unfortunately I hate fish, but that’s a story for another time. This beverage was another small success in my efforts to make up more of my own recipes. It uses some ready-made ingredients (next time, lemonade from scratch!), but I’m still taking baby steps!
This is so easy and would be great to serve at a summer BBQ or picnic.
2/3 bag frozen mixed berries (or berry variety of your choice; strawberries or raspberries alone would be marvelous)
1 bottle of your favorite store-bought lemonade (I used 1.75 L Simply Lemonade; limeade would work too), or your favorite from-scratch lemonade recipe
2 tsp. sugar (or to taste)
Toss frozen berries with sugar in a small microwaveable bowl. Heat on high in 30-second increments until defrosted and juicy, stirring after each increment. Pour berries along with their juices into a large pitcher, and pour lemonade over berries. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
