Fresh Raspberry Lemonade

Fresh Raspberry Lemonade (By:Me)
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
6-8 lemons, juiced (depending on how sour you want it - I did 6)
2 cups raspberries
additional 5-6 cups water

lemon slices

1. In a microwave-safe container, place the 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water. Heat for approximately 2 1/2 minutes or until all sugar is dissolved. Pour into a pitcher

2. Juice lemons and place juice into pitcher with sugar water.

3. In a food processor or blender, place raspberries and pulse on high until completely pureed. Strain raspberries through a fine sieve or strainer to remove seeds. Place strained raspberry juice into the same pitcher with the juice and sugar water. Whisk all ingredients together. 

4. Add additional cold water to taste preference and refrigerate until chilled. Serve with garnish.
