Sparkling Blackberry Lemonade

Adapted from – Cooking Light

4  Cups cold water, divided

1  Cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
2  Cups sparkling water

In a blender or food processor, combine the blackberries and 1 cup of the water.

Puree until smooth, then press the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer to remove the seeds.

In a pitcher, combine the blackberry puree, sugar, lemon juice, and the remaining water.

Stir well to dissolve the sugar.Chill until ready to serve, and top with the sparkling water just before serving.

About Delicious Goodies

Love life, the outdoors, photography, reading, cooking, baking, spending time with family. Just a girl next door in what I call paradise - Southern California. By no means a professional cook, I do enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and sharing with others. I hope you enjoy what you find here! I have one Vegan in the family, so we are always making two meals, rather fun, and it allows us to try new ideas. When I was in Middle School I use to help my Grandmother make cookie canisters - every year at Christmas we would make an assortment of cookies, breads, candy and put them in a wrapped canister and give them as gifts. I still enjoy this idea, although haven't done it that much - at least not an assortment of goodies. I think this year will be the year I go back to that idea and see how everyone likes it. Have a wonderful week, and spread kindness everywhere you go!
