Blackberry Lemonade

Standard

Blackberry Lemonade

Yields about 2 quarts

6 cups water, divided
1 cup sugar
4 lemons
2 cups (1 pint) fresh blackberries

In a large saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil with the sugar. Once completely dissolved, remove from heat and allow to cool.

Juice the lemons; this will yield about 1 cup of freshly squeezed juice. In a blender, combine lemon juice and blackberries and blend until pureed. Strain mixture and discard seeds.

In a pitcher, stir together sugar water, blackberry puree, and add 4 additional cups water. Refrigerate until cool or add ice cubes to individual glasses to drink sooner. Serve with a wedge of lemon.

Since spring has just arrived in South Africa, I think this will be my seasonal drink.
