For this weekends Sunday Supper we are gathering recipes to throw the ultimate pool party. We all know a good pool party requires something light, and refreshing to sip on while your hanging out at the pool so I decided to share Spiked Blackberry Lemonade, since it's the perfect summer sipper.

 I made a triple batch of Blackberry Lemonade for Colt's 40th Birthday last weekend and then spiked a few for the guest.

I made this recipe in 2 steps with the Blackberry Lemonade in one part and then spiked it in step 2 incase you have company looking for a nonalcoholic version.

With blackberries ripening early this year the kids have been out picking away already so Blackberry Lemonade has been a daily staple in the fridge! 

I know you'll love these spiked or un-spiked as much as we do.

Here's how to make homemade Blackberry Lemonade: 

Sugar and water in a small saucepan.

To make a simply syrup to sweeten Blackberry Lemonade in a small saucepan stir together: 
  • 1 1/3 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 1/3 cup Water 

Simple Syrup in a small saucepan for Blackberry Lemonade.

Cook over medium heat until sugar dissolves and mixture becomes clear. 
Set aside.

Blackberries and Water in a blender.

In a blender puree 3 cups Blackberries with 1 cup Water.

Love the gorgeous bright red color of the blackberry puree! 

I strained out the seeds from the blackberry Puree, but you could always leave them in. I prefer the smoother texture.

A pitcher filled with sugar syrup, pureed blackberries, lemon juice, water, and ice for Blackberry Lemonade.

In a large pitcher stir together:
  • Sugar Syrup
  • Strained Pureed Blackberry Mixture
  • 1 cup Lemon Juice
  • 2 cups Water
  • 3 cups Ice
Stir together until well combined and cold.

The Blackberry Lemonade can be enjoyed at this point or made into a cocktail in the next step.
