Lemonade with Berry Ice Cubes Recipe!

What you'll need

  • 1 11.5-oz. can frozen concentrate strawberry or any berry mix juice
  • 24 raspberries or 8 strawberries, sliced (optional)
  • 2 quarts water
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar (or more, to taste)
  • 1 1/3 cups fresh lemon juice
  • 8 lemon slices
  • 8 mint sprigs

How to make it

  1. Pour the juice concentrate and 1 can of water into a pitcher. Mix to combine, then pour the juice into two ice cube trays, adding raspberries or sliced strawberries if you wish. Freeze.
  2. Combine the 2 quarts of water and the sugar in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil and stir to combine. Reduce to a simmer and cook until the sugar is dissolved, about 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Strain the lemon juice through a fine sieve into the sugar syrup. Chill. Slit each lemon slice once, from center to rind, then press the slits onto eight glasses. Fill each glass with 3 berry ice cubes and the lemonade. Garnish with a mint sprig. Makes 8 glasses.
