Raspberry Lemonade

Adapted from Cookingclassy

Everybody complain about heat in summer, though we look forward to escaping winter cold weather. When it’s cold I put on warm clothes, have hot drink and dream about hot season. What is the problem in summer? I can’t see any, just do the same but on the opposite. Is it so bad to have less clothes on, move faster, be more active, having refreshing drinks? Even children know that liquid is extremely necessary for human body. My niece, she is 5, told me that the secret of beautiful shapes is in drinking much liquids. Can I disobey? So, the reasons to drink more in summer are obvious. Is it possible to refuse a glass of icy soda or lemonade when you have to do so much, but midday is still far?
One weekend, staying at home because of heat, I was thinking about night party. Whose idea was it to have fun when it’s hot even at night? It was mine! I had persuaded my friend to get together, having promised a lot of various drinks. It wasn’t about strong drinks – too hot. Classical lemonade was a must, but what else? I experimented with liquids, ice, fruit and berries. Later, searching the internet I found a recipe of raspberry lemonade on this food blog. “It is interesting “, I thought then. Ingredients are not unusual. I made this lemonade and in the evening I heard -“It’s awesome!” from my friends. The taste is just refined and refreshing. We are fans of this lemonade now. I even take a bottle of it to work.It is worth tasting!
