Russian Raspberry

"From an old English hot beverages book. I had some raspberry syrup left from some canned raspberries & gave this a go. If you use the syrup you probably won't need the sugar unless you're a sweet tooth. Makes a refreshing change from tea or coffee."

  1. This recipe was delicious for my recipe at school that I had to make for my world buffet. It turned out very well!!!!!Thanks!!!!!!
  2. Super drink! It's very fast and easy to make. I used the honey option and it was wonderful. Warm lemonade is one of my favorite cold weather drinks, but I never thought to add the raspberry. I will be making this often. Made and Reviewed for Zaar Stars - Thanks! :)
  3. Thank you so much for sharing this very pretty hot fruit drink Mandy. I have a very sore throat and this lovely drink was the best medicine. I made this for myself today, knowing that I would love it because it has two of my favorite fruits in it. I made raspberry syrup and used orange blossom honey. This delicious drink was quick and very easy to make. It was warm, smooth, silky, sweet, tart and tangy.
  4. It's a bit chilly here now so I followed this to a T. As much as I like having cold drinks, this was welcoming when I had this warm. Used honey and raspberry syrup for the options. Taste reminded me of a red fruit tea but better. Thanks.
  5. I enjoyed this refreshing drink cold too! It's 100*F. outside, so used the boiling water, let it cool down, then added ice. Thanks!


  1. Mandy, I hope that you don't mind but with the indoor temp currently 91 F (with all the fans going) I made this as a cold drink. I used the lemon juice, raspberry juice and a 1/2 tsp of Splenda. Then I used cold club soda in place of boiling water and added ice. It's a Raspberry Lemon Soda and very refreshing. I like the bit of tartness that comes through. The flavors are lovely together.


Melbourne I live on a 5 acre property in the Dandenong Ranges Victoria, Australia, having moved from the burbs when I became pregnant with my now 15 year old daughter Alyssa. Once my daughter was born I became a stay at home mum as I couldn't bear the thought of putting her in daycare. She is the light of my life, I never imagined myself as a mum when younger but now wouldn't have it any other way. Alyssa was made a big sister on the 19th April 2010 when our cheeky little boy Blake was born. I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes so quickly become addicted to Zaar as it was previously known & still use it regularly. In addition to being my kids taxi :lol: I also spend my time, reading, gardening and of course shopping. I'm lucky enough that we have the space & so love growing our own fruits, vegies & herbs, this also means we have plenty of room for animals & at the moment have 2 dogs, Max, a Jackshund who's 6, Fletcher, a Kelpie who's 4, 6 cats Snowpea, Fergus, Ginger, Tango, Annie & Cookie, 4 chooks & 2 Ducks. As well as our pets, we also have a lot of native animals around our area, we have kangaroos, wombats, echidna's, possums as well as rosella's, galah's & Cockatoo's hence the name of where I live..
