Frozen Lemonade with Blackberry Puree

A slushy blend of sweetened fresh lemon juice and ice, this version includes blackberries, but you could use strawberries, raspberries or blueberries for equally tasty results.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups plus 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup fresh orange juice
  • 3/4 cup simple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 pint fresh blackberries, juiced (about 1/3 cup), plus more blackberries for garnish
  • 4 1/2 cups ice cubes
  • 4 fresh mint sprigs

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, stir together the lemon juice (except 1 teaspoon), the orange juice and the simple syrup. Set aside.
  2. In another small bowl, stir together the blackberry juice, the remaining 1 teaspoon lemon juice and the 2 tablespoons honey. Set aside.
  3. Put the ice cubes in a blender and add the lemon juice mixture. Blend until smooth.
  4. Put 1 tablespoon of the blackberry puree into each of 4 glasses. Pour in the frozen lemonade, dividing evenly. Garnish each with a mint sprig and a few blackberries. Serve immediately.
