Cary's Hard Lemonade

After a day of hard day of setting up a lemonade stand, standing guard and cleaning up - it was time for a cup of lemonade that I could enjoy. I poured some leftover raspberry lemonade over some rum and was surprised with the results.

Here is the recipe for some excellent lemonade the adults can enjoy.

1/2 gallon water
1 can Frozen lemonade concentrate
1/4 cup frozen raspberries
3/4 cup sugar
1 bottle Captain Morgan Spiced Rum

Good water is an essential trick to a quality drink, make sure to use filtered or bottled water for best results.

Boil 1 cup of water, add sugar. This dissolves the sugar down to a simple syrup.
Mash the raspberries in a bowl. Strain the raspberries into a pitcher.
Add the frozen lemonade concentrate and simple syrup to the pitcher, then fill pitcher with water.
Mix well.
Fix a tumbler with ice and a shot of rum. Top off with raspberry lemonade.

The kids can enjoy a cup of "virgin" raspberry lemonade while you relax with a glass of Cary's Hard Lemonade.
