This is the best homemade lemonade I’ve made. It easy to make and is made with lemon juice. The fresh raspberries and mint really make it special. The mint isn’t overpowering, it has just the right balance of flavors. It’s an easy raspberry mint lemonade recipe you can make for every day during the summer. You can garnish the lemonade to make it fancy enough for parties.
