Raspberry Rum Lemonade blends the tangy flavors of lemon and raspberry with the delectable flavor of rum. Fresh berries enliven the experience and add a classy garnish.  This is not the lemonade stand variety we knew when we were kids.

Recipe type: Alcoholic Cocktails
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4
Ingredients
Raspberry Simple Syrup:
  • 1 Cup water
  • 1/2 Cup granulated white sugar
  • 2/3 Cup fresh raspberries
Remaining Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 Cups water
  • 1/2 Cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 4 ounces light rum, divided
  • ice
  • raspberries/lemon slices for garnish, optional
Instructions
  1. Make the simple syrup: Heat water in a glass measuring cup in the microwave (or in a small pan on the stove) until almost boiling. Add the sugar and stir to dissolve. Cool slightly, then pour into a blender along with the raspberries and pulse until pureed. Pour the raspberry simple syrup through a fine sieve to strain out the seeds. Refrigerate until cold (can make ahead).
  2. Prepare the cocktails: In a medium pitcher, combine the raspberry simple syrup, 1 1/2 cups water and lemon juice. Divide ice between 4 medium glasses. Divide raspberry lemonade between the glasses. Top each glass with 1 ounce (or more) of the rum. Stir to combine, and garnish with skewers of raspberry and lemon (or float them in the glass). Serve immediately.
