Summer is almost here…and that means lots of hot summer days and long summer nights! One of my favorite things about summer is being able to enjoy icy cold drinks! I have always LOVED lemonade! It is my favorite, refreshing drink in the hot summer sun. I have already shared our favorite Lemonade Recipe with you, along with this fun Lemonade Kit, which makes a fun and unique gift idea. Today I want to share with you our Favorite Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade Recipe.
This drink is perfect for your next family reunion, BBQ, or lazy summer day! It tastes great and is pretty enough to serve up to your guests. And don’t you love the monogrammed pitcher and glass bottles? I am personally obsessed with Monograms, so why not add some to your drinks?!
I think some monogrammed glassware would be a fun and unique Mother’s Day Gift or Wedding Gift idea! I simply printed the Monogram onto some Clear Sticker Paper to make a temporary Monogram. It is a great way to add some flair to your party table and allows you to change it up according to the type of party you are having.
You could make them more permanent by etching the glass with some Etching Cream like I did for this Monogrammed Vase…or you can paint the glass with some Glass Stain! I know that I would be thrilled to receive some of these as a gift…hint, hint!
Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade
1 (12 fluid ounce) can frozen raspberry lemonade concentrate

1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage

Just a few more weeks until we are in full blown summer mode, and we can’t wait. We always look forward to having a more relaxed family schedule and being able to spend some lazy days together as a family.
