We like our lemonade a little more tart but feel free to modify this to your tastes!
1 3/4 cups white sugar
8 cups water, divided
1 1/2 cups FRESH lemon juice
1-2 pints raspberries (optional)
2-4 cups strawberries (optional)
In a small saucepan combine sugar and 1 cup water. Bring to boil and stir constantly until the sugar is dissolved. Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate until chilled. Remove seeds from lemon juice, but leave pulp if desired. In pitcher, stir together chilled syrup, lemon juice and remaining 7 cups water.
In a blender add 2 cups of the prepared lemonade and the raspberries or strawberries. Blend until smooth adding more lemonade if needed. Add mixture to the rest of the lemonade and stir well before serving.
Note: This goes VERY well with sweet tea or sweet tea vodka for an Arnold Palmer (regular OR adult version)
