This Sparkling Mashed Raspberry Mint Lemonade is refreshing and healthy – the perfect summer drink.
A few weeks ago, my niece graduated from high school and we celebrated dinner with a fresh Raspberry Lemonade. I loved the smashed raspberries in the lemonade – it was so pretty and made the drink more interesting.
This month, I’m participating in The Recipe Redux challenge where we’re celebrating ReDux’s birthday month by making or creating a recipe inspired by a fellow Reduxer.
I chose fellow Recipe Reduxer, E.A. Stewart , who is a nutrition coach, registered dietitian, and culinary nutritionist living in sunny San Diego. I’ve been following E.A.’s blog for a while and love her gorgeous photography, as well as her healthy, beautiful recipes that support digestion wellness. Her recipes are gluten-free and FODMAP friendly for people with IBS, but are foods anyone can enjoy. E.A. is one of the most supportive bloggers I know and although I have yet to meet her in person, I know she is a genuine, generous person.
I spotted this Strawberry BasilLemonade on E.A.’sblog, and it reminded me of thefresh Raspberry Lemonade I had tasted in Boston. I was inspired to make this Sparkling Smashed Raspberry Mint Lemonade when I got home.
The ingredients are very simple. The key is to use the freshest, best ingredients you can find.
I smashed the raspberries and mixed it with fresh lemon juice, mint and a honey syrup mix. This mixture can be refrigerated for up to a day.
When you’re ready to serve, simply scoop out half a cup of this raspberry mixture and top it off with ice and sparkling mineral water.
