Raspberry Lemonade

Trying to keep cool during this crazy heat? Here's a lemonade idea to try!

half a lemon
1/4 cup fresh raspberries
1 1/2 cup water

5 mint leaves
1 raspberry
1 toothpick 

1. Find your favourite glass. If the glass isn't big enough to fit a small whisk to crush up the raspberries, you can make the drink in a bowl and then transfer it over to your glass.

2. Squeeze half of a lemon into your glass or bowl. (You can hold your hand underneath to catch the seeds.) Add the water and the raspberries and crush them using a whisk. Stir well, add ice cubes if desired and add sugar or agave syrup if you would like yours sweetened.

3. For the garnish stack the mint leaves on top of each other and puncture them close to the stem with 1 toothpick. Then fan out the leaves so it almost looks like a flower, and gently pierce the raspberry on top. You can lean this garnish against the rim of the glass or you can also attach it to a lemon slice garnish that sits nicely on the rim of the glass.
