Raspberry Lemonade

Let me apologise first cos I had promised that I would open up the blog to 2014 with a classic dessert. But here I am breaking it. And so I am sorry. Not that I didn't make the dessert, I did make it and we did indulge in it. The whole plate was licked clean in one sitting. I made the classic apple pie for our New year dessert and it was perfect in every bite. The pie crust turned out beautifully flaky and melt in the mouth, the apples were soft but firm and cooked to perfection and the filling was to die for with the perfect blend of cinnamon and spices and a hint of orange. On the whole it was absolute perfection. I did save a slice so that I could click pictures the next day but thanks to the clouds it was snowing non stop. Thinking that the sun would never show up, I gorged on the piece for breakfast... And did you know what happened, the sun came out shining bright by mid-noon... I really messed it up and I was sulking around the whole day. But no worries, the pie was a great hit with the huss and so it is gonna show up atleast once a month so I will share it with you the next time I make it.

Till then lets enjoy this cooler. I know that it is cold here and I know that this drink is not for this weather. But it is perfect for me. Yes, when everyone prefers hot chocolate for the dipping mercury levels I love to sip on ice cold Mochas and freezing cold ice creams. So when I saw fresh raspberries in the market, I knew that I would pick them up and make this. Since it is just for me I made a small batch but this recipe could be easily doubled or tripled.


Prep time: 5 mins; Cooking time: 10 mins; Serves: 4-6

~*What U Need*~
Fresh Raspberries - 1 1/2 cup
Lemon juice - 1/4 cup
Sugar - 1/3 - 1/2 cup
Water - 1/2 cup

How I Made it:
Clean raspberries and pat dry. Heat water in a saucepan and add the sugar. Allow to melt. Add the lemon juice and mix well. Add the raspberries and cook till soft.

Remove and cool down. Blend till you get a smooth mixture. Sieve to remove the seeds and store in a clean container.

To serve add 2 tbsp syrup or more in a glass, top with ice cold water and serve with more icecubes.

Serve topped with ice!!!

So thats it Folks...
With Love,

Signs off!!!
