Em's Organic Blackberry Lemonade

We decided to kick off the warmest day of the year so far with a twist on a classic! The honey and blackberries really compliment each other and the color as you can see is so gorgeous and appitizing! Also the use of organic ingredients gives it the freshest and purest taste you wouldn't believe. Definantly give this a try at your next picnic, or just for you and your family!
Easy Organic Blackberry Lemonade
 yield: 1 gallon

Ingredients:
  • 3 Cups Water
  • 1 ½ Cup Raw Organic Honey (Local Preferable)
  • 1 Cup Fresh Organic Blackberries
  • Juice of 5 Medium Organic Lemons (or approx 1 cup)
  • Ice Cubes (about 1/2 pitcher)
Method:
In a medium saucepan dissolve your honey with 1 cup of water on medium heat (up your honey if you’re a real sweet-tooth).  Add 1 cup of blackberries to syrup and mash thoroughly.  Pour into your pitcher that's filled half way with ice. Add your cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice and 3 cups of water to the pitcher. If desired, add a few thin slices of lemon and a few whole blackberries to the pitcher and serving glasses for a beautiful garnish.  Enjoy immediately!!
I hope you'll give this a try and let me know what you think! Remember to tweak the ingredients to taste so it turns out just the way you love your lemonade every time!

Have a fresh and tasty day everyone!! 
xo, Emily
