Kick back with a glass of Spiked Raspberry Lemonade … the ultimate summer cocktail recipe that takes minutes to make!
My husband and I have finally moved into our new apartment. I’m relieved that the stress of moving is over, and now it’s time to enjoy our new space … once I unpack all those boxes. Ha!
The best feature of our new place is the patio with its awesome 18th floor view. I can’t remember the last time I lived somewhere that had outdoor space (city girl problems!), and I’m beyond excited to spend the summer out there.
Dallas summers are super hot, so of course, I’ll need a refreshing cocktail to cool off while I’m enjoying the city view. This Spiked Raspberry Lemonade is exactly what I have in mind!
Are you looking for a delicious summer cocktail recipe? This spiked lemonade is perfect for enjoying all season long, whether you’re lounging by the pool or kicking up your heels on your patio!
You are a going to love this refreshing cocktail. It pairs the fresh summer flavors of lemonade and raspberries into a colorful, delicious, and irresistible drink.
My favorite thing about this drink is that it’s so easy to make. The ingredients get stirred together in one pitcher, and there’s no simple syrup prepare, because this Spiked Raspberry Lemonade is made with my favorite secret ingredient: Torani Raspberry Syrup!
This delicious Raspberry syrup is one of three new Torani Syrups at Walmart this summer. Look for these Raspberry, Peach, and Passion Fruit syrups in the tea aisle, then check out the coffee aisle for syrups to flavor your morning coffee, too.
These syrups are so unique, simple, and versatile. I like adding them to all kinds of drinks, including cocktails, mocktails, sodas, lemonade, iced tea, and more. It’s the perfect way to add a little something extra to a personal drink or cocktails when entertaining friends … just add a splash to any drink using the easy pour valve!
This delicious Raspberry Syrup is my fave … it tastes just like fresh-picked berries! And I love that Torani is 3rd generation family-owned (since 1925) and makes its syrups with real, simple ingredients, like pure cane sugar and natural flavors.
My spiked lemonade recipe would be delicious with any of these syrups, so once you try it with Raspberry, experiment with the Peach and Passion Fruit syrups, too.
And of course, make sure to let me know your fave combination!
How to Make Spiked Raspberry Lemonade
This spiked lemonade could not be easier to make! It’s ready in minutes and serves a crowd, although I’ve also included directions for a single serving (see the recipe notes for details).
Let’s get started! You’ll begin by making a simple sugar syrup from hot water and sugar. Just combine the two and keep stirring until the water turns clear.
Next, you’ll mix in fresh lemon juice, vodka, and Torani Raspberry Syrup. Once everything is combined it’s time to enjoy your spiked lemonade … told you that was easy!
I love the combination of vodka and lemonade. It’s definitely a classic pairing, but a for a non-alcoholic drink, simple leave out the vodka.
I served this Spiked Raspberry Lemonade in mason jars for a fun, summery touch, but any tall glass will do. To serve, simply fill your glass with ice, then add the spiked lemonade.
Make these summer cocktails even more festive by garnishing them with a slice of lemon and a few raspberries. So pretty, right?
Now that you know how to make this amazing Spiked Raspberry Lemonade, stir up a pitcher and invite your friends over for an easy summer get together!
This refreshing Spiked Raspberry Lemonade is the ultimate summer drink!
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 5 large, juicy lemons, juiced*
- 1 1/2 cups vodka
- 8 oz Torani Raspberry Syrup
- fresh raspberries
- sliced lemon
Combine sugar with 3 cups hot water (from faucet; not boiling) in a pitcher; stir until sugar is dissolved and water is clear.
Add 3 cups cold water; mix well.
Stir lemon juice, vodka, and Torani Raspberry Syrup into sugar-water mixture.
Fill 8 glasses with ice, then top with Spiked Raspberry Lemonade.
Garnish with raspberries and lemon slices, if desired. Enjoy!
*I left the pulp in the lemon juice, but if you prefer, you can use a fine mesh strainer to strain it out.
To make one cocktail, instead of a pitcher: combine 1.5 tbsp sugar with 1/2 cup hot water in a mason jar or tall glass. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Add 1/4 cup cold water, juice from 1/2 a lemon + 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1.5 oz vodka, and 1 oz Torani Raspberry Syrup. Mix well, then fill glass with ice and garnish with raspberries and a lemon slice.
