Glenda's favorite way of staying cool in the summer is a tall glass of her homemade lemonade; once you try it, you'll pull up a chair so you can enjoy it in full, too! Glenda's Fresh Raspberry Lemonade infuses the sunny flavors of classic lemonade with the sweet, tart, and slightly floral flavor of raspberries. The result tastes like the best kind of peaceful, lazy afternoon, especially because it's easy and quick to whip up a whole bunch of glasses. Glenda's Fresh Raspberry Lemonade is a refreshing take on a great refreshment.
