My Sparkling Mixed Berry Lemonade is full of frozen berries and made with fresh squeezed lemons and sweetened with honey for a healthy and fun drink!
7 whole lemons
1/2 cup honey (local is best)
5 cups water
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup frozen blackberries
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
12 mint sprigs
16 ounces vodka
Make the honey lemonade
Start by juicing the lemons.
Roll in between your hand/counter to release the juices.
Slice in half and juice the lemons, removing seeds.
You should end up with roughly 1 cup lemon juice depending on the lemons. Fewer lemons may be needed just be sure to get one cup of juice.
Strain to remove seeds if needed.
Combine the honey and 1 cup of water in a sauce pan and bring to simmer.
Stir to dissolve the honey into the water.
Alternatively you can heat the water in the microwave and then add honey, stirring until completely combined.
Add the lemon juice and honey mixture to a pitcher.
Add 4 more cups of water.
Stir to combine.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until needed.
Make the Mixed Berry Lemonade
In a cocktail shaker add a few of each of the berries (roughly 3-5 of each) and a mint sprig.
Muddle or smash to crush the berries and release the mint oil.
Add 4 ounces of honey lemonade and 2 ounces of vodka.
Shake to combine.
Serve the Mixed Berry Lemonade
In a tall glass add ice.
Pour the berry lemonade mixture over the ice.
Top with 4 ounces 7Up.

Large Punch Version

Shake to combine.

Stir to combine and bring out that pretty pink color!
Add 7Up to make it sparkle!
Fill with ice.
Garnish with frozen berries and mint sprigs.
Serve and enjoy responsibly!
Mocktail Mixed Berry Lemonade
If you want to make this a mocktail so kids of all ages can enjoy, simply replace the vodka with more 7Up lemon lime soda in the individual drinks or the large batch version.
