Pink Lemonade – Homemade pink lemonade made with fresh raspberries and lemons! So easy and so refreshing and delicious for a baby shower, summer party or picnic!
The countdown to Memorial Day has begun, and it’s been so much fun thinking about the food and drinks we’ll be enjoying throughout the weekend. We’ll be spending the weekend up at our lake cabin and although the water will still be too cold to swim in, there are lots of other activities we’re looking forward to. Horseback riding, roasting s’mores and doing a little downtown shopping in a quaint community in Northern Wisconsin are all on the to-do list.
When I think about summer, I think about fresh fruits, fresh salads and fresh drinks. Don’t you, too? So, today we’re making a sweet, tangy and delicious homemade Pink Lemonade!
This recipe incorporates fresh raspberries, lemons and organic sugar to make a refreshing lemonade that will delight you and your guests. Fresh ingredients are the best, and this particular drink is made even better with Tate+Lyle® Organic Pure Cane Sugar.
Tate+Lyle® Organic Sugars aren’t only certified organic, but Fairtrade certified as well. I love that they provide opportunities for small-scale sugarcane farmers to invest in their communities for a sustainable future.
What caught my eye about the Tate+Lyle® Organic Pure Cane Sugar was the delicate blonde-colored sugar crystals. The sugar cane is grown in sun-kissed organic fields, then lightly refined to create an unmatched sweetener that’s perfect for sprinkling on cereals and fruits – and sweetening drinks like tea, coffee and this pink lemonade.
When I entertain, I love to make beautiful drinks in pitchers. There’s just something about a clear pitcher filled with a sweet, homemade lemonade with fresh berries that makes guests feel appreciated.
I know when I’m invited to a party and someone makes a homemade drink recipe, it just seems so special and something I, of course, am excited to try.
Garnish this pink lemonade with a lemon slice and a few fresh berries, kick back and relax.
This, my friends, is what summer is all about. Sipping on a sweet lemonade with friends and family, just soaking up the sunshine. Ahhhh. . .what a way to welcome in summer.
It really doesn’t get any better than this!
I found Tate+Lyle® Organic Sugars in the sweetener aisle at Walmart. Use the product locator page at tateandlylesugars.com/us/ to find them in a store near you.
