  2. Hi Helen! The raspberry lemonade looks wonderful and I would love to try it, but I get an error message when I click the recipe link (I’ve tried on my phone & desktop). Is there a way you could put the recipe in the post? Thanks!

    I looooooooooove raspberry and I’m jealous as we don’t have here fresh one.
    I think I could make the raspberry syrup from frozen ones, right?

      Yes you can – just check the sugar content and add sugar accordingly. I freeze lots of berries just so I have them on hand for things like this when they go out of season!

  5. Oh my gosh this looks so delicious! Going to have to try this out this summer… thanks for sharing at #FridayFrivolity! Pinning and tweeting. :)
