Pink Lemonade

Pretty pink lemonade is refreshing and a flavor bomb! Crushed cranberries add the lovely pink color and an amazingly refreshing twist to this lemonade.

This is by far our favorite lemonade this summer season and will become your favorite too. When I first heard about the pink lemonade, which was an accidental invention in the US, I couldn’t wait to make it. The usual way to bring the colour pink was by using red or pink food color or by addition of crushed berries.

What is the pink in pink lemonade?

Pink lemonade is made pink by the addition of crushed berries, like raspberries, cranberries, strawberries or pink dye colour.

How do you make raspberry lemonade?

Make the regular lemonade by adding simple sugar syrup or fine sugar and lemon juice. Taste the lemonade and adjust as per your taste. Add ice if needed. Now add crushed raspberries or any berries for that matter and make a pretty pink lemonade.

  • 4 tbsp Sugar Syrup* (or 2 tbsp fine sugar)
  • 2 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 cup Dried Cranberries or Fresh Cranberries
  • 1 cup Water
  • Lemon Spiral for Garnish


  1. Re hydrate cranberries in hot water for about 15 minutes. Skip this step if using fresh cranberries.

  2. Blend together re hydrated cranberries with 1 cup of water.
  3. Keep the juice aside. You can sieve the juice if you don’t like cranberry chunks but they are delicious and can very well be added to the lemonade.
  4. In a jar or a glass, put some ice, pour sugar syrup (or fine sugar), lemon juice, and a spiral lemon.
  5. Pour the cranberry juice and serve chilled.

Recipe Notes

For Simple Sugar Syrup*

  1. Heat together water and sugar, in equal quantities. Keep stirring in between till sugar dissolves.
  2. Take it off the heat as soon as the sugar dissolves completely.
  3. Sieve the mixture to get rid of impurities. Let the syrup cool before using.
