Electric lemonade recipe


In my family, nothing screams summer like a tall glass of "electric lemonade."  The delightful mix of raspberries, lemon, and fresh mint is so satisfyingly refreshing, and yet so simple.
Ingredients:
  • lemonade concentrate (pink or yellow)
  • sprite
  • ice
  • frozen raspberries
  • fresh mint (!)
Put a handful of mint leaves, a handful of ice cubes, a few handfuls of frozen raspberries, half a can of lemonade concentrate, and an eye-balled amount of sprite into a blender.  Blend!  That's all there is to it.  And you have one of the most amazing  tastes of summer!  Enjoy!:)
