Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup superfine white sugar*
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 6 ounces (1 container; about 1 and 1/3 cups) fresh blackberries
  • 2-3 cups lemon lime seltzer water

Instructions

  • Combine the 2 cups of water and sugar in a saucepan. Stir to combine and bring to a boil. Stirring occasionally, boil this mixture for 2 minutes.
  • Remove sugar water from heat and add in the lemon zest and lemon juice. Cool slightly.
  • Add the blackberries to the blender and pour over about 1 cup of the lemon water mixture. Blend until completely smooth. Place a fine mesh strainer over your pitcher and using the back of a spoon, press the blackberry juice through the strainer into the pitcher discarding the seeds.
  • Add the remaining lemon mixture to the pitcher. Stir well. Add the seltzer water (add to taste preference -- more seltzer water for a more diluted drink). Only add seltzer water to what will get drunk within 1-2 hours otherwise add the seltzer water to individual glasses.
  • Serve over glasses filled with ice (the ice also dilutes the lemonade a bit)

Notes

*This is pretty sweet lemonade depending on the berries and lemons you have; feel free to reduce the sugar to your personal preference.
