This is the most refreshing drink I have had on a hot summer day! When you add the ingredients in the correct amounts (I had to make it several times and try more of this and less of that) it is superb! An absolutel MUST when you are having company in the summer.

VERY TART and VERY REFRESHING! I mixed the chilled syrup with the lemon juice and then used it in individual glasses as I felt like some. I used 6 packets of splenda to a tall glass to give it some sweetness. Next time I may try boiling the lemon zest with the raspberries next time and straining it.

A cooling, refreshing drink that goes perfectly with a meal from the grill. This was wonderfully tart, definitely fizzy, and had a lovely fresh berry flavor. Thanks, Bev.

One of my all time favorites! I love the tartness of both the lemons and the reaspberries - only regret is that I changed this to only make 2 servings becuase I thought no one else would drink it - not counting on how much I would enjoy it!! VERY refreshing ( if you want a sweet drink, I suggest adding more sugar, but taste as you go) the recipe as it stands is PERFECT for my tastes. I will DEFINITELY make this one again. I am heading back downstairs to add a little vodka to mine now to see how I like that for a "Mommy friendly" version!! ;) Thanks again, Bev!!

This was easy to make and a beautiful color. It was more tart than sweet, which I really liked. However, as written, it was a bit too strong for our taste. I had bought only the one liter of sparkling water and really it needed more, so I ended up adding some plain water to dilute it a bit. Then the taste was very good, but not as bubbly. Next time I will buy two liters of sparkling water and add it to taste. In short, a great recipe, but it needs a bit of fiddling to make it turn out right. I think this is more from variations in the natural ingredients than anything else.

Wow! Is this wonderful. Without a doubt the best lemonade I've tried to date. A very lovely presentation. Tart & flavourful, very refreshing. I followed your recipe but added 4 tbsp extra of sugar at the end. (personal preference only). Thanks so much for sharing, I'll be making this alot this summer.
