  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 5 cups water filtered is best
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 cup raspberries


  • In a small saucepan, add sugar to 1 cup of water. Heat until dissolved.
  • While water is warming, place your raspberries into a fine mesh sieve. Using a spoon or rubber spatula, crush berries and push through the sieve. ( I do this right into my pitcher to save on dishes!)
  • Combine sugar water, remaining water, lemon juice, and raspberry puree into a 1/2 gallon pitcher. Chill and serve.
