Frozen Raspberry Lemonade

It seems that summer is finally here. Hooray! The weather is warming up and my exams are over. Did I say ‘my exams are over’? Well, hooray again! It’s official; summer has started and what better way to celebrate than going shopping and spending some time with good friends.

I am going back to Greece next week (unfortunately only for a few days) and the tickets to my favourite island have already been booked. So today was a good chance to do some last minute shopping. After spending two (hmm, ok maybe more) hours looking for the perfect bikini I desperately needed something refreshing.

How about a cold glass of Lemonade? Fresh. Sweet. Tart. Refreshing. Fruity. My first thought was to make a lemonade with raspberry syrup. However, I realised that there weren’t any ice cubes in the freezer. So I made a traditional lemonade recipe and added frozen raspberries instead of ice cubes.

This lemonade combines the tartness of lemon and the fruity aromas of raspberry. It tastes like summer in a glass.

If you want to turn this lemonade into a more adult beverage, just add a splash of gin or vodka. Welcome summer with this refreshing lemonade! Enjoy!
