Notes and FAQ

  • You can adjust the level of sweetness or tartness in blackberry lemonade according to your taste. To make it sweeter, add more sugar. If you prefer a more tart flavor, add less sugar and more lemon juice.
  • I recommend straining the blackberry syrup before adding it to the lemonade to remove any seeds or pulp. Use a fine mesh sieve or a cheesecloth to strain the syrup.
  • Serve blackberry lemonade over ice cubes and garnish it with fresh blackberries and lemon slices, or add some mint sprigs.
  • For a touch of fizz, consider adding a splash of seltzer, sparkling water, or club soda.
