RECIPE OF THE MONTH:
BERRY LEMONADE
3

This refreshing drink will cool you down on those warm summer days!

Ingredients

  • 1 (12-ounce) bag unsweetened frozen mixed berries, thawed
  • 1 (12-ounce) can frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
  • 1 cup vanilla simple syrup, recipe follows
  • 3 cups water
  • Ice
Vanilla Simple Syrup:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 vanilla bean, cut in half lengthwise, seeds removed, pod reserved

In a blender, combine the berries, lemonade concentrate and syrup. Blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into a large pitcher. Add the water and stir, then refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Pour the lemonade into ice-filled glasses and serve.

To make Vanilla Simple Syrup:
In a small saucepan, over medium heat combine the sugar, water, vanilla bean seeds, and vanilla pod. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved, about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the syrup to cool, about 20 minutes.

The blended mixture can be strained through a fine mesh sieve to remove the berry seeds, if preferred.
