 Raspberry lemonade

A tasty summer Drink

Raspberry lemonade is the perfect tart and tangy beverage to quench your thirst on a warm day.

This copycat version of The Cheesecake Factory's raspberry lemonade is great on its own, but you can also add sparkling water or lemon-lime soda to give it a little fizz. For the adults, add some vodka or tequila for a delicious happy hour.
