Simple Sweet & Tart Blackberry Lemonade
If a tree falls on your garage will it make a sound?
Yes – a giant thud …
and it will put a hole in your roof too.
So when my poor hubby was out sweltering and sawing the giant branch into bite size pieces …
I pulled a June Cleaver and delivered him a glass of my new favorite simple blackberry lemonade recipes to quench his thirst.
- 1 cup simple syrup
- 1 cup blackberries
- 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (from 4-5 large lemons)
- 1 cup water
- Muddle simple syrup and blackberries (combine and squish the blackberries with a wooden spoon or a meat mallet like I did)!
- Add lemon juice and water
- Pour over ice and serve with a cute paper straw and a lemon slice
- Pat yourself on the back for pulling the world's easiest June Cleaver
This lemonade recipe is seriously lip smacking good …
Mix up a batch and watch the smiles erupt!
P.S. My hubby’s aunt was throwing away these fabulous vintage etched glasses – I rescued them from a cruel fate.

Sorry about your garage thud and Andy sweltering in the sun surely with his shirt off… well, sorry about the garage thud anyway….
We purposely cut a big tree down, it was dead, and the cable broke but thankfully it missed hitting anything by mere inches.
So sorry about your garage roof. I’m sure your June Cleaver move made your husband’s job just a little bit less annoying. That blackberry lemonade looks delicious!
Could really do with a tall glass of this right now. Maybe with a dash of vodka
That looks wonderful Kelly…sorry about the tree…We had a Cedar tree go down but it missed the garage by inches…We thought it was not doing well…had an arborist come out and he said that it was just fine…just need some deep root treatment…well two days later, it was on the ground!…Sorry about the hole in the roof…
Yum! I’m all about lemonade lately…with vodka. Now I’ll have to try this out…with vodka 🙂
What a mess with the garage. I hate when things like that happen. Your lemonade sounds wonderful I have never had anything like it! I’d do it without the vodka though- I’m crazy enough- xo Diana
Mmmmm, never tried blackberries with lemonade yet since I always end up eating them all up! Hahaha! Will try it one of these days, I have still yet to try your brussel sprout recipe too! Well, I’m excused, my kitchen is destroyed right now anyway. 🙂
Kelly, thank goodness no one was hurt when the tree fell – that is SO scary! This lemonade, though, looks so refreshing and delicious! I just brought home a bunch of lemons, so I’ll need to get some blackberries and try this! 🙂 Thanks for sharing your recipe with us and have a wonderful weekend!
Thanks for posting your recipe! Great timing too, I just had my first blackberry of the season yesterday!! We have a huge burm of blackberries and I’m always on the hunt for good blackberry recipes – thanks again!
this looks yum! We love picking blackberries, I’ll have to give this a try!
This looks and sounds yummy, Kelly!! xo
