Raspberry Lemonade with Fresh Mint

Enjoy a refreshing glass of Raspberry Lemonade made with raspberries, squeezed lime and lemon juice infused with fresh mint.


My obsession with berries and lemons is at an all-time high. So much so that I had to find a way to consume even more than I already do :).

A couple of days ago, MN experienced the warmest day of the year so far, which had me longing for a cold glass of lemonade and this wonderful version was born shortly after.  

May I add that this was my very first time making lemonade from scratch using real ingredients? Guys, this is a must-make and a must-taste. It will have you seriously question the stuff you can buy in a bottle or make from a powder or concentrate.


So I hope you’re on board as I share a recipe perfect for summer – even though Spring has yet to fully spring in so many parts of the country!

I am done waiting for the weather to make up its mind and am more than ready for the flavors of homemade lemonade to saturate my taste buds.


One of the great things about making your own lemonade is that you are in total control of the sweetness. Also, you can jazz things up and get as creative as you’d like. For example, not only are lemons high on my list these days, but limes are as well. So why not swap out some of the lemons and add the juice of two or three incredible limes as well? 

It’s a citrus dance party in your mouth!


Here are your ingredients:

Fresh Mint

Each of which are completely delicious on their own. I love a lineup like this one. So simple and a 100% wonderful. I get so excited when I see all of these vibrant colored foods sitting on my counter ready to be transformed into something even more awesome and flavorful.


Alright, I’m going to grab another glass to enjoy inside my 75 degree house on another 35 degree day, ha. Happy Thursday!

Write a review
  1. 6 lemons
  2. 2 limes
  3. 3/4 - 1 cup granulated sugar
  4. 1 package (12 oz.) frozen raspberries
  5. fresh mint, about 1/2 cup
  6. 5 cups water
  1. 1. Juice lemons and limes and pour liquid into a pitcher (64 oz). Add sugar and give it a good stir. Set aside.
  2. 2. Puree raspberries in a blender until smooth an no chunks remain. If you don't mind the seeds, you can add the pureed raspberries to the juice in the pitcher (make sure the sugar is dissolved) right away. I put the pureed raspberries through a fine mesh strainer first to get rid of most of the seeds. Add to the pitcher and stir well.
  3. 3. Add mint leaves (some whole and some roughly chopped or torn into pieces) to the raspberry mixture. Add 5 cups of water or as much as needed to fill up the pitcher. Place in the fridge and let cool for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Serve in glasses filled with ice and garnish with additional raspberries, mint leaves and lemon or lime wedges. Enjoy!
  1. Raspberry Lemonade will keep up to 5 days in the fridge.

  1. This just screams summertime! Is there anything better than lemonade on a hot day? Love that you added raspberry and mint. I can see myself taking this to the next level and adding a little vodka in this for a fun summer bbq cocktail. Yum!

    PS-Your pictures are so gorgeous Kathi! I’d love to be nosy and ask what lens you use?

    • Thank you so much, Natalie. There are no rules as to where you can take this lemonade :). We will be enjoying this a lot this summer.
      I have a 50mm prime lens and a macro lens, which I use once in a while. Nothing fancy 🙂

  2. I’m totally feeling the lemon and berries!! Right there with you, Kathi! And about the weather here in Minnesota, yeah….how about for the next two days…YIKES. At least it will be much much warmer next week!! Hopefully this will be our last big hit for the year! Thanks for sharing, I should make this today to help me dream of warmer weather 🙂

    • Thank you so much, Kelly! Yeah, let’s hope we’ve seen the last of this crazy winter. Definitely soaking up the rays now…. Can’t wait for almost 70 degrees on Wednesday!! Hope you had a wonderful weekend, dear!

  3. Kathi, this lemonade looks AMAZING!! I am SO ready for more than ONE warm day…this weather has been crazy here in Wisconsin…goes from 75 & Sunny to 30 & snowy in less than 24 hours! Crazy! I have never made lemonade from scratch and I can’t wait to try your recipe! Pinned 🙂

    • Thanks, Jenn. Yeah, this winter has been crazy. We have yet to reach 70 degrees, but were blessed with a gorgeous day today. I really hope last week’s storm was it for this year. We are definitely looking forward to the day when we can enjoy this lemonade on our deck. And thank you so much for the pin, dear!!

  4. Oh hey, sexy lemonade! This is practically jumping out of the screen, begging me to make it. I haven’t made homemade lemonade since the infamous summer day when I spilled 2 1/2 cups of freshly squeezed lemon juice all over my countertop and floor. I’ve been holding a grudge since then, but maybe it’s time to mend some fences and try again!

  5. This looks SO refreshing! Such a colorful and happy looking beverage. I love the addition of mint. Anything with mint makes me think of mojitos so I might just have to add a splash of white rum when I try this!

  6. I love flavored lemonades! Raspberry lemonade is one of my favorites. But with mint? I bet it’s even better!

    I’m so excited for summer. I planted herbs for the first time last year, and my mint went crazy! I planted it with mojitos in mind (haha!), but there was so much I used it to make mint-chip ice cream, too. Now I can add this lemonade to my “fresh from the garden” list. Yum!

    • I am obsessed with mint. Homemade Mint-Chip Ice Cream sounds amazing. I might just have to plant some mint myself this year. I bet I would go crazy and put it into everything! Thanks, Ashley!!

  7. My daughter is wanting a homemade Raspberry Lemonade with Mint for her wedding in August! This may be exactly what we’re looking for! I’m going to try it this weekend for a taste test. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!
