Whether you prefer something light and slushy or sweet and robust, these tasty drink recipes from Out Here readers are sure to satisfy your thirst. 

 

Blackberry Raspberry Lemonade

Blackberry-Raspberry Lemonade

“Wild black raspberries grew up the entire length of the driveway, intertwined into a stone wall my grandfather had laid on our farm, all the way to our pig barn,” writes Jessica Robinson, of Graham, N.C., the editor, recipe developer, and photographer of The Carolina Farmhouse Kitchen blog.  

“We picked them often during the summer and froze them. I love growing some of our own berries to use in desserts, jams and specialty drinks like this one.”

  • 1 pint blackberries
  • 1 pint raspberries
  • 3 cups water
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 cups fresh lemon juice
  • Fresh mint for garnish 

In a medium saucepan over low to medium heat, soften the blackberries and raspberries with about ½ cup of water. 

Cook them until they are very soft.

Use a hand food mill to separate the juices and seeds.

Let the fruit juice cool, and discard the seeds and skins. 

In a medium saucepan, dissolve the sugar in the water, making a simple syrup.

Pour the simple syrup, lemon juice, and blackberry and raspberry puree into
a 1-gallon pouring pitcher. Pour into ice-filled glasses and garnish with mint.

Makes 1 gallon.

From the Out Here kitchen: We didn’t have a hand mill, so we used a strainer and the back of a spoon to separate the juices and seeds.
