Raspberry Lemonade Fizz

Make Raspberry Lemonade Fizz the “signature drink” at your next party! It only takes 3 ingredients and everything can be made ahead.

People spend a lot of time planning their menus around the holidays: Cocktail parties, get togethers with friends, Ugly Sweater Parties, and the actual holidays themselves.

With the food bound to be plentiful and varying, I love having the “drink” part of it figured out way in advance. I love the idea of serving a Mocktail that is easily spiked for those who are interested (I’m still a month out from being one of those “interested” parties…) but kid-friendly.

This easy Raspberry Lemonade Fizz is perfect for the host or hostess because it can be prepared way in advance, and adults will love its colorful appearance and fruity kick!

How to Make Raspberry Lemonade Fizz

First, cook down frozen raspberries into a thick, syrupy juice. Time: 10-15 minutes.

Second, press syrup through a fine-mesh sieve to remove seeds.

Third, chill the raspberry syrup for at least 2 hours.

Finally, combine raspberry juice with lemonade concentrate in a large pitcher and top with ginger ale.

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

  • 1 (2 Liter) bottle ginger ale
  • Ice

  1. Such a lovely colorful drink and so festive. I love the idea of using fresh raspberries, must so tasty with the ginger ale.

  2. I am not a big soda drinker, but I have always loved ginger ale! Paired with fresh raspberries, I image the taste would be phenomenal! Light, refreshing, perfect!

  3. What a festive drink, great for the holidays! Can’t wait to try it!

  4. Thank you for this awesome and refreshing looking drink!! #client

  5. Hi Meggan thanks for this refresher :) I have a question how come on your pics you circled the 7UP? Can 7UP be used instead of the Canada Dry? Is that what the circled meant?

    • Hi Peter, that is an excellent question! The post was sponsored by BOTH 7UP and Canada Dry, so I needed to show where both products were on the shelf, but I only need to create a recipe that featured one of the products. My recipe uses Canada Dry. (incidentally, I used the 7UP I purchased to make a Shirley Temple around that same time and posted that, too). So, the circle is confusing and I’m sorry about that. I should probably fix the picture so that my intentions are clear. I appreciate you stopping by, I’ll work on fixing up that picture!!

  6. I’m assuming this would work with strawberries too?

  7. How many glasses does this make?

    • Hi Rosemary! This will be make twelve 8-ounce glasses. Approximately. 12 servings, 8 ounces each. Thank you! If you need anything else just let me know.

  8. Any ideas for using the leftover raspberry pulp? I made a double batch of this and I hate to throw out all the pulp. 

    • Hi Bonnie! You could definitely throw it in a smoothie if you make those. Possibly a berry pie filling or in with berry jam, but those sound super specific and you might not make them often. I feel like a smoothie is the easiest way to use it up. I love your no-waste attitude!

  9. How about adding a cup or so of vodka and making a slush?
