  • A great fruity and refreshing drink for the whole family of crushed raspberries and lemon juice. Perfect for picnics, parties and everyday drinking

    Ingredients

    • 4 unwaxed lemons, scrubbed
    • 100g (3½oz) caster sugar
    • 250g (8oz) raspberries, roughly mashed
    • To serve:
    • Crushed ice, lemon slices, fresh raspberries and lots of mint

    Method

    • Peel the zest from the lemons, using a swivel-head vegetable peeler. Try not to get any white pith. Squeeze the juice from the lemons. Put the zest, lemon juice and sugar in a heatproof jug.

    • Pour in 600ml (1 pint) boiling water and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Add the mashed raspberries. Cover and leave to cool completely.

    • Strain the mixture into a serving jug. Dilute with about 300ml (½ pint) chilled water and sweeten with extra sugar, if you like. Add plenty of ice, lemon slices, raspberries and mint.
