Pour over ice and serve! Or better yet, set the pitcher on a drink cart or buffet table with the ice and glasses, and let your guests help themselves. I recommend plastic cups for the kiddos!

Ingredients 

  • 24 ounces frozen raspberries thawed and undrained (see note 1)
  • 1 (6 ounce) can frozen lemonade concentrate thawed
  • 1 (2 Liter) bottle ginger ale (see note 2)
  • Ice
  • lemon sliced, for garnish (optional)

Instructions 

  • In a 4-quart saucepan, bring the raspberries to a simmer over medium-high heat. Cook, stir frequently, until the berries have broken apart and released their juices, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Using a fine-mesh sieve, strain the berries to remove the seeds, pushing down on the solids to extract as much liquid as possible. You should have about 1½ cups. Refrigerate raspberry juice until chilled, at least 2 hours.
  • In a large pitcher or punch bowl, combine raspberry juice and lemonade concentrate. Stir in ginger ale and serve immediately over ice, garnished with lemon slices if desired.

Notes

  1. Raspberries: Do not substitute fresh raspberries. Frozen strawberries or blueberries may be substituted for the raspberries (the color will change).
  2. Ginger ale: Lemon-lime soda (such as Sprite or 7up) may be substituted for the ginger ale.
  3. Yield: This recipe will make at least 10 cups of Raspberry Lemonade Fizz, enough for 10 servings, 1 cup each.
  4. Storage: Store extra Raspberry Lemonade Fizz in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  5. Make ahead: The raspberry syrup can be made up to 3 days in advance. Assemble the Raspberry Lemonade Fizz just before serving (so the Ginger Ale doesn't lose it's fizz).
  6. Freezer: Pack the raspberry syrup in a freezer-safe container (I like to use Mason jars; leave 1/2-inch headspace for expansion). Label, date, and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator.

    1. Hi Suzanne, I don’t see why not. I imagine the color wouldn’t be exactly purple, but you could adjust it with food coloring. Hope the party is a hit!
