blackberry mint lemonade

This Blackberry Mint Lemonade is made with freshly squeezed lemons and blackberry juice that’s the easiest to mix up. Infused with a mint syrup, this colorful magenta lemonade is super refreshing and has just the right amount of sweetness with hints of fresh mint. It takes about 15 minutes to prepare and makes for a super fun non alcoholic beverage that everyone can enjoy.

This lemonade is perfect to whip up in the Spring or Summer time. From Easter brunch, to mother’s day, to family backyard BBQs, baby showers and so on! It makes it easy on the host with a big batch that’s ready to go. This recipe serves about 8-10 medium sized glasses.

MINT SYRUP

Simple syrups are so easy to make at home, all you need is equal parts sugar and water. They can be infused with almost anything- especially herbs, teas, and flowers. As soon as the sugar is dissolved that’s when you add the infusing ingredients. Syrups can last 1 month when kept refrigerated. I know I’ve made this combination many times before, especially with the abundance of mint that grows in the herb garden during the summer. I always like to add it to iced coffees, even teas as my sweetener, hot or cold ones, and of course almost any cocktail recipe.

BLACKBERRY JUICE

Couldn’t be any easier. Blend them up in the food processor or in a blender until they turn into a puree or a very thin jam like texture. It doesn’t quite look like juice because its a little thick but its great for mixing into liquids to thin it out a bit. Its impossible to strain any of the seeds, you just end up loosing half the blackberry juice but they are so small that you hardly notice this. If you prefer a lighter blackberry taste, start off by only blending half the recommended amount and adjusting from there. For any extra, I recommend turning it into actual jam to spread on toast, add to yogurt parfaits or for pastries.

The great thing about this lemonade is that it requires very few ingredients, no straining, minus the lemon seeds, and it will keep for a few days refrigerated. Roughly 4-5 days. You could of course swap out for some raspberries or strawberries.
