Raspberry Lemon Juice – Non Alcoholic cocktail / Summer Drinks

Glorious summer calls for refreshing drinks…

As summer hits its peak, thirst quenchers are in high demand. Summer is all about hitting the beach, outdoor fun, gardening, grilling and refreshing drinks. We have been actively doing all these as soon as we knew that the winter frost has disappeared. One of the joys of summer is that I could go for strawberry, raspberry, apple and other fruit picking. Most probably I’ll be visiting a farm over the weekend. My local farmers market is filled with almost all kinds of berries, during my last visit I bought a few boxes of raspberries and strawberries. After too much of eating the berries, I was forced to make some juices out of it. I made the juice with raspberries and now I prefer this juice rather than eating the fruit by itself. I also added lemon juice and ginger to the pureed raspberries, it was quite refreshing and we couldn’t stop with just 1 or 2 glasses.
