Blackberry Lemonade Cooler
Blackberry puree takes lemonade a step beyond for a festive summer beverage.
- 3 cups fresh or frozen blackberries, thawed if frozen
- 1 1/4 cups fresh lemon juice, (about 5 large lemons)
- 1 cup superfine sugar
- 4 cups cold water
- 1 cup club soda, (optional)
Puree blackberries by pressing through a fine mesh strainer to yield 3/4 cup. In a large pitcher, combine lemon juice and sugar; stir until sugar is dissolved. Add water and blackberry puree; stir to blend. Refrigerate, covered.
To Serve: Add club soda if desired. Pour over crushed ice; garnish with a curl of lemon zest.
Amount: 8 servings
3/4 cup Paradigm Blackberry Sauce may be substituted for the blackberry puree.
Juice is more easily extracted from lemons when they are rolled on the counter or microwaved for about 10 seconds.
