Blackberry Lemonade for 2

>> Wednesday, June 26, 2013

Wow. It really feels like feast or famine over here on the blog with regard to recipes. One week, I'm writing about ridiculous diet claims or giving a detailed food diary, the next I'm all about making + eating food. I've just felt particularly inspired this week to make different dishes, desserts, and other tasty treats.

I am also having a blog identity crisis. But more on that another time. In the summer, I love lemonade, but I never want to make/drink an entire pitcher. This recipe isn't rocket science, but I figure if I didn't think to make a small batch until now . . . maybe it's new to you as well.



What you'll need . . .

  • Juice from 3 large lemons 
  • 3 cups cold water
  • 1+ tablespoons raw honey*
  • Handful frozen blackberries**
  • Ice, lots of it

* Feel free to experiment with using agave, maple syrup, or even pure cane sugar -- whatever floats your boat and customizes the sweetness to your liking.
** Would also work great with frozen raspberries, chopped strawberries, etc.

Method . . .
  1. Put the lemon juice, water, and honey in a large glass and stir until raw honey is completely dissolved.
  2. Put in however much ice you'd like and then toss in the frozen fruit. Shake or stir around a bit until the fruit releases some of its juices into the drink. It will happen fast.
  3. Drink ASAP -- the ice melts fast. Enjoy the thawed fruit at the end of your drinking.
  4. (And feel free to add a splash of your favorite booze. Or even just add tonic water for some sparkle.)
What's your favorite hot weather drink? Share your recipe in the comments! I'm thinking of posting a roundup on one of the upcoming Weekend Things posts.

Psst: Today we're mixing up batch 2 of our frozen yogurt (batch 1 was the chocolate + coconut, which is almost gone -- I can't believe it!). This time, it's going to be delightfully tart! I can't wait to share.
