Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup superfine white sugar* or to preference
  • 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 the sugar water from heat and add in the lemon zest and lemon juice. Cool slightly.
  • Add the blackberries to the blender along with about 1 cup of the lemon-water mixture. Blend until completely smooth. Place a fine-mesh strainer over the 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 and stir well. Add the seltzer water to taste preference -- more seltzer water for a more diluted drink. Only add seltzer water to what will get used 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.
