Sara's redcurrant lemonade

Lemonade is a must in summer. This luxurious redcurrant lemonade with refreshing lemon is the perfect drink on a hot day.

I ett mörkt rum häller någon upp en rosaröd dryck i ett glas fullt med is och citroner.
  • 1 lbs 10 oz redcurrants
  • 7 cups (around 1.5 liters) water
  • 1 1/4 cups (around3 dl) raw sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups (around3 dl) lemon juice, freshly pressed or store-bought
  • fruit soda

I have a dream of not only growing my own vegetables but also having plenty of fruit and berries in my garden. I'm getting there! We have quite a lot of currants now, that I propagated with cuttings. This is one of my favorite lemonade recipes that both children and grownups love, redcurrant lemonade.


Remove the stalks and cut the redcurrants into smaller pieces.
Put the berries in a pot with water and sugar.
Bring to a boil and let it simmer for 10 minutes.
Pour through a sieve.
Let it cool down.
Add the lemon juice and then pour the lemonade in glass bottles.

Mix 1/3 lemonade with 2/3 fruit soda when it's time to drink your lemonade.

Serve with plenty of ice. Enjoy!
