Raspberry Lemonade - Spiked or Not

Serves: 12

I have raspberry bushes and they are loaded, ripe, and ready. I also have a Meyer Lemon tree that I keep in the house in the winter and move to the patio in the summer. What better thing to have than fresh, fresh lemonade for a summertime treat? If I have an abundance, I puree the raspberries, squeeze the lemons, add the sugar and freeze. When ready to serve, thaw and add the water.

Want it spiked? Try adding whiskey or vodka.
