  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup water + 6 cups for serving
  • 1 1/4 cup raspberries
  • 1 1/2 cup lemon juice freshly squeezed (about 6-8 lemons)
  • 1-2 tablespoon grenadine syrup (optional, for colour)
  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 2 lemons sliced


  • In a saucepan, combine sugar, 1 1/4 cups water and raspberries to create a raspberry simple syrup. Heat it over medium heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Simmer on low heat for 5 minutes, mashing raspberries a bit as it simmers. Remove from heat, strain using a fine mesh sieve and let cool to room temperature.
  • Add 3/4 of the raspberry simple syrup to a pitcher with the lemon juice and about 5 cups of water. Stir to combine. For a deeper red colour (and added sweetness), you can stir in some grenadine syrup (optional). Taste and adjust the lemonade by adding more syrup, water, or lemon juice as needed. Refrigerate.
  • Before serving, add the fresh raspberries and lemon slices to the pitcher.
