How to Make Raspberry Lemonade Fizz
- Cook down frozen raspberries into a thick, syrupy juice. Time: 10-15 minutes.
- Press syrup through a fine-mesh sieve to remove seeds.
- Chill the raspberry syrup for at least 2 hours.
- 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!
And there you have it: A signature drink for your next holiday party, tailored for a crowd, fun to drink, without last-minute work.
Raspberry Lemonade Fizz
- 24 ounces frozen raspberries thawed and undrained
- 1 (6 ounce) can frozen lemonade concentrate thawed
- 1 (2 Liter) bottle ginger ale
- lemon sliced, for garnish (optional)
- 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.
