- Another way to make this thirst quencher is to prepare the simple syrup. Heat 3 cups water with 3 cups of sugar till the sugar dissolves first. Refrigerate the syrup to cool it before you make this recipe.
- Make a big batch of simple syrup and use it to prepare different kind of summer beverages.
- Use fresh raspberries instead of frozen, if available. Fresh always tastes better than frozen product.
- I prefer using Meyer lemons, you can use any variety you like.
- Other sweetening substitutes you can use – Sugar, honey, monk fruit, etc.
- Garnishing options can be dried citrus slices, fresh slice of orange, lemon or blood orange, spirals made out of lime, lemon or orange.
- Adjust sweetness per your taste.
- I also like using club soda in place of sparkling water for that extra fizz, hence the name of the recipe – Fizzy Raspberry Lemonade!
- You also have the option of using premade lemonade although I find it too sour and sweet for my palate.
- Turn this mocktail into cocktails by mixing it with vodka, gin, prosecco or tequila.
- Make raspberry simple syrup instead of the puree. I make raspberry simple syrup by adding 1/2 cup sugar to 1 cup water and a standard container of raspberries. I cook for about 10-15 min at a slow boil/simmer, cool slightly, and then strain the seeds out.
- This drink can be a great addition to your kid’s lemon stand this summer.
- Swap Raspberries with strawberries to make fizzy strawberry lemonade.
