Give your summer lemonade patriotic flair with red and blue berries.

Serving Size: 7

  • 1 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1 1/2 c. fresh lemon juice (from about 10 lemons), plus 2 lemons, sliced
  • Berries and fresh mint sprigs, for serving
  • In a small saucepan, combine sugar and 1 1/2 cups water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the sugar dissolves, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and cool completely.
