Homemade Old Fashioned Blackberry Lemonade Recipe

             This blackberry lemonade is really easy to make and turns out so light, tangy and refreshing.  It is the perfect balance of sweet and tart!


·        4 ½ c. water, divided

·        1 c. blackberries

·        1 c. sugar

·        1 T. grated lemon zest

·        Lemon slice, for garnish, optional


In a large saucepan, bring 2 ½ cups of water and the sugar to a boil.  Allow the water to boil for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Remove from heat and stir in the lemon juice, lemon zest and the remaining 2 cups of water. Allow the mixture to cool a bit.

Once it has cooled a bit, pour 1 cup of the mixture into a blender.  Add in the blackberries and blend well.  Strain and discard the seeds.  Pour this mixture and the remaining lemon mixture into a one gallon pitcher.  Stir well.  Fill the pitcher the rest of the way up.  Refrigerate until cold or serve over a cup of ice. 


     Each serving has about 50 carbs.
