There is nothing as refreshing or as simple as homemade lemonade on a hot summer’s day. A few drops of rose water makes it that little bit more Middle Eastern and exotic. The raspberries are there because I find there aren’t enough drinks with things that you can eat in them (why only Pimms?!).
For 4-6 dainty glasses
Juice 4 lemons (good and juicy ones)
6 teaspoons of sugar (adjust to suit your own taste)
few drops of rose water
handful of raspberries
2 pints cold water
Juice the lemons and strain through a sieve. Stir the sugar and the juice well in a jug. Pour in the water, add add the ice and rose water. Mix well. Serve in chilled glasses and try to avoid smacking your lips audibly.
