The Foodie Files

Picnic season is upon us (and thank heavens for that), so what could possibly be more appropriate than a delicious fresh squeezed lemonade recipe?  Maybe a delicious fresh squeezed blackberry mint lemonade recipe!  How's that sound?  Cause it sure tastes incredible.  Oh and bonus, it's seriously easy to make.  I think your Memorial Day guests would agree there's no time like the present to give it a try.

3 cups water
1/2 cup simple syrup

1 cup lemon juice (about 6 lemons)
2/3 cup blackberries
2 TBS mint (about 15 leaves), chopped

Mix water and simple syrup and set aside.

Juice lemons and add to water mixture, watching for seeds as you pour.

Muddle the daylights out of the blackberries and mint. 

Add to lemonade, stir, pour and enjoy!
