Blackberry Rosemary Lemonade

Fresh blackberry lemonade with a hint of rosemary.



Level: Intermediate

Serves: 10


  • 6 cups Water, Divided
  • 1-½ cup Sugar
  • 3 sprigs Fresh Rosemary
  • 1-½ cup Fresh Blackberries
  • 4 whole Lemons, Juiced


In a small saucepan, heat one cup of water, the sugar, and rosemary over medium heat and bring to a boil. Boil for about 8 minutes, then remove from heat, cover and let steep for 1 1/2 hours. When you are finished it will look like a pale green syrup. Remove the rosemary sprigs from the syrup. Add the blackberries to the syrup, and using a stick blender, blend until smooth.

Strain the blackberry syrup into a large bowl, using a spoon to push all of the syrup through the strainer. Discard the leftover seeds. Pour the lemon juice into a pitcher, and add the remaining 5 cups of water. You can use more or less depending on how strong you like your lemonade. Pour the blackberry rosemary syrup into the lemonade and stir. Chill before serving. Serve with fresh rosemary sprigs and a slice of lemon. Enjoy!
