This Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade is a delicious and refreshing fruity drink that’s made with raspberries, lemons, simple syrup, and club soda.
I am a huge lover of specialty fruit lemonades and one of my favorites are those made by Ruby Tuesday’s, or should I say used to since they don’t make them like this anymore. I loved the raspberry lemonade and now that they’re changed up their menu, it was time to create a copycat recipe of my own.

Lemons were on sale this week too and I have a bit of a lemon addiction, my relationship with lemons is a very old one, one that my family could tell you lots of stories about, I love eating lemons straight! Therefore, this lemonade is a little on the tart side, because that’s how I like it and that’s how I believe lemonade should be… not that sickly sweet Minute Maid crap.
Anyways, the real key to this delicious raspberry lemonade is the club soda, it adds a great fizz and makes the drink really sparkle! I also love the pulpiness of the raspberries and how it really brings the bright and fruity flavors to life!
Honestly, I’m not sure I could think of a more refreshing drink during the hot summer months, this drink is just so tart and vibrant and super delicious, you’ll want to sip it all summer long too! Make a big batch for the weekend get togethers or prep everything except the soda and store it in the fridge to drink over a couple of days, add a splash of fresh soda to each glass for fizz!
