Thirsty Thursday: Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade

There's nothing that says Summer more than a cold glass of fresh Lemonade. We love it and we love trying different variations of lemonade with different fruits in our house to shake it up a little bit. On our last Thirsty Thursday, I shared with you a Mango Lemonade and in the past before we've shared Strawberry Lemonade. All were delicious and loved by our entire household.

Today I want to share with you Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade. Let me just say, I thought the mango lemonade topped it all, but this is just scrumptious and did not last long in our house at all. Fresh lemons and raspberries, a perfect combination, served with some cold sparkling water, it definitely gives your drink a kick that you'll remember and want to serve for guests during barbecues and family picnics.

As I mentioned before, we were sent a huge package from Bernardin's that not only included the mason jars from yesterday's post, but also there new Four Pack Drinking Mugs. The perfect amount for my mini family. The kids absolutely love drinking out of these mugs. Not only do I love the look of how cute these mugs are, but I also love that you can add a cute top to them using the Bernardin's sips and straw lids.

They're dishwasher safe and are a really great quality and not heavy at all to pick up. That was something I was worried about with the kids drinking out of them, but they were perfect. You can take these mugs just about anywhere with you. And wouldn't they be cute to serve on a nice Summer afternoon on a girls night in?! For more information on Bernardin's and all of their products be sure to check them out online and you can reach them on their social networks pages on Twitter and Facebook.

Directions: In a pot, mix together your sugar and 3/4 cup water and bring to a boil then stir for about 2 minutes or until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.

Next mix in the remaining water and the raspberries in a blender and blend until it's well combined. In a pitcher, add in your raspberry mixture, orange juice, lemon juice, sparkling water, and simple syrup. Stir to combine and serve.
