Two Days ago we came back home from our wonderful 3 week trip to Eastern Canada, besides the stunning landscape and the open-hearted people we met, we tasted lot of delicious things (Maple Sirup, Chocolatines, Lobster, Beer from regional breweries and Homemade Raspberry Lemonade).
After an hour of hiking around the confluence of the Saint Lawrence and Saguenay river and 1 hour of watching belugas we were looking for something to eat. Locals recommended us the “Le Café Bohème” (should you ever be in Tadoussac, just go there) where we had a very good pizza with salad and a truly remarkable Homemade Raspberry Lemonade. It was delicious! The sourness from the lemons complemented the taste and the sweetness of the raspberries perfectly.
Back home the heat (a whopping 32°C in the shadow) is hitting us very hard – but we remembered the delicious and refreshing lemonade! Thus we made our own Homemade Raspberry Lemonade. And of course we are sharing our recipe with you.
For about 1 litre Homemade Raspberry Lemonade you need:
- 1 litre water
- 200g fresh raspberries
- 50-100g sugar or glucose sirup
- Juice of 2 lemons
First of all wash the raspberries and put them in the blender, add the sugar and a tiny bit of water. Blend all to a smooth raspberry puree.
Then add the lemon juice and the water and mix it well.
We filtered the mixture to get rid of the little kernels and fibers.
Now your Lemonade is ready for the fridge. Let it cool down for at least 2 hours in the fridge. If you want to accelerate the cooling process just add less water and some ice into the blender. Also you may want to change the amount of water (and of sugar if you’re really sweet) to match the recipe to your taste – we found that adding another liter of water didn’t hurt the taste at all!
Enjoy your fresh Homemade Raspberry Lemonade!
