Wrestling with the Issues Raspberry Lemonade

Wrestling with the Issues Raspberry Lemonade

I'm not really sure what the issues are anymore (both candidates seem to have forgotten).  After a few of these, I'm sure I'll remember.

1-1/2 Tbsp. lemon zest
2 cups fresh lemon juice
1-1/4 cups sugar
3 cups water
12 oz. frozen raspberries
1 bottle (750 ml) chilled vodka

Combine zest, lemon juice, sugar and water in a pitcher, stirring until sugar is completely dissolved.  Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours but no more than 24 hours.  Strain mixture into 3-qt. serving pitcher.

Add 1 cup lemonade and half of the raspberries to blender container; cover and blend until smooth.  Stir into pitcher along with vodka and remaining raspberries.  Serve in ice-filled wine glasses with lemon wedges.

In a hurry?  Prepare a 12 oz. can of frozen lemonade as directed.  Continue as directed, reducing vodka to 2 cups.
