This entire summer, I have been up to my elbows in cake (or rather soapy water and cake-making dirty dishes) for a new project. It’s been so hot with the oven constantly on and I feel like my brain is a bit fried.
We usually don’t keep a variety of beverages in the house (the fridge is already packed with butter, milk, and eggs), so I’ve been on a homemade lemonade kick lately to cool off. Just a squeeze or two of fresh lemon juice, a few ice cubes, and agave all shaken up in a cocktail shaker. Add water and voila! So much better than drinking plain water all day – and if you know me, then you know I’ve always struggled to drink enough water per day.
I like to jazz up my lemonade when I can. I love adding mint simple syrup, sliced strawberries, and honey. My favorite? Adding raspberry puree. Hello raspberry lemonade!
To give my brain a break from all that cake, I decided to give the ol’ classic lemon bar a twist. By just replacing some of the lemon juice with raspberry, I came up with these amazing Raspberry Lemonade Bars!
