Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Lemon Juice: Freshly squeezed lemon juice will give this drink (slushy) the most flavor. You will need the juice from 2 large lemons. However, you could use bottled juice, too.
  • Sugar: Granulated sugar adds sweetness and helps balance the tartness of the lemon juice. For a lower-calorie option, you could use a sugar substitute.
  • Raspberries: Raspberries give the drink a fresh, fruity flavor. Plus, they turn the slushy into a lovely shade of pink! Fresh raspberries could also work. You could try other berries, too, or a blend of a few different kinds of berries.

Can I Add Alcohol To Make A Frozen Raspberry Lemonade Cocktail?

Absolutely! If you want a refreshing summer cocktail, it’s easy to add alcohol to this slushy drink. Simply add your choice of alcohol to the blender with the other ingredients. (Vodka, rum, or tequila are all great options.) Blend, pour, and sip! Cheers to a boozy, slushy drink!

Can I Make Frozen Raspberry Lemonade Without A Blender?

Yes, you can make a frozen raspberry lemonade without a blender, but you do have to make a few adjustments to the recipe. Start by letting the frozen raspberries soften a bit, then mash them with a fork. Mix the mashed raspberries with lemon juice, sugar, and water in a bowl. Stir in ice cubes until they melt a bit and the mixture gets slushy. Add more ice or water if you need to. Pour into glasses and enjoy your homemade frozen raspberry lemonade!

How To Make and Store Frozen Raspberry Lemonade Ahead Of Time

Here is how to get the frozen raspberry lemonade made and stored to enjoy on those hot summer days!

  1. Prepare the Raspberry Lemonade: Blend the lemon juice, granulated sugar, raspberries, water, and ice cubes until smooth.

2. Pre-freeze the Mixture: Pour the blended mixture into ice cube trays or a shallow, freezer-safe container. This allows the lemonade to freeze evenly and makes it easier to blend later.

3. Store in the Freezer: Once frozen, transfer the lemonade cubes or frozen mixture into an airtight, freezer-safe container or resealable plastic bags. Label with the date.

4. Reblend Before Serving: When ready to serve, take the frozen lemonade out of the freezer and let it sit for a few minutes to soften slightly. Then, reblend the frozen mixture or cubes in a blender until smooth.

5. Serve and Garnish: Pour the reblended lemonade into glasses, garnish with lemon slices and frozen raspberries, and enjoy your refreshing drink.
