Rhubarb-Raspberry Lemonade

Eliza Adam

Serving Size: Makes 1¼ quarts

This is one of the best tasting lemonades ever made! With the tangy rhubarb combined with sweet raspberry, it’s the must-try drink recipe of the season.

Ingredients

  • ½ lb. rhubarb, cut into ½” pieces (about 2 C)
  • 10 oz. raspberries
  • 2½ C granulated sugar
  • 1 C lemon juice
  • 3 C water

Preparation

In a large saucepan, cook rhubarb, raspberries, and sugar over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Once the mixture starts to boil, reduce heat to medium-low. Keep cooking until the mixture becomes very soft, about 15 minutes, stirring often. Let the mixture cool completely. This will yield about 2 C of rhubarb-raspberry concentrate.

Mix 1 C of the rhubarb-raspberry concentrate with the lemon juice and water. Stir thoroughly, adding more sugar if desired. Add ice cubes to lemonade and serve.
