Raspberry Lemonade

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Dona England

I made this for our Mother's Day cook out. Everyone loved it. This is a recipe from ChiquiNO - a caterer and cooking teacher in New Orleans. I made one tweak - I added sparkling pink lemonade to the pitcher because I didn't make enough lemonade! Worked great.

Wow! This was just exquisite! I didn't have SPARKLING pink lemonade, but used a reconstituted pink lemonade from concentrate--so maybe didn't get the full whizz-bang-ness of it, but enjoyed it immensely anyway! *Made for PAC Fall 2007*
