How to make your very own Pink lemonade!


For the raspberry syrup

  • 250g/9oz frozen raspberries
  • ½ lemon, juice only
  • 100g/3½oz caster sugar

For the lemonade

  • 3½ lemons, juice only
  • 1 lime, juice only
  • 2 tbsp raspberry syrup (from above)
  • 100g/3½oz caster sugar, to taste
  • ice, to serve


  1. To start making the raspberry syrup, put the raspberries in a saucepan with 2 tablespoons of water. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently as the berries begin to soften and release their juices. Gently cook for 5 minutes, or until the berries have completely broken down.

  2. Force the berries through a fine sieve or a jelly bag, suspended over a bowl, for a couple of hours to extract all the lovely juices. You can give the berries a squeeze with the back of a spoon to get any last few drops out. You should have about 150ml/¼ pint of juice.

  3. Add the raspberry juice to a saucepan with the lemon juice and caster sugar. Cook gently over medium heat, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Pour into a clean jam jar and set aside to cool. Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

  4. To make the lemonade, mix the lemon and lime juice, raspberry syrup, and caster sugar in a jug. Stir to dissolve the sugar. Add 575ml/1 pint of water and plenty of ice.
