The Thrifted Kitchen - Pink Lemonade

I've been craving Pink Lemonade for awhile, so I made a longwinded video of myself making some! I'm going to try to go through some of my favorite thrifted vintage and antique cookbooks and post little tutorials - do you have anything you'd like to see or any era you'd like me to cover?

If you don't feel like putting up with my longwinded instructions, here is the recipe:

First Make Raspberry Sauce:
- 1 small package Raspberries (about 3/4 c)
- 1 tbl Sugar
- 1 tbl Water

Crush Raspberries in food mill or processor, add sugar and water and stir. Set aside.

Then Make Simple Syrup:
- 2 c. Sugar
- 2 c. Water

Combine Sugar and Water and simmer on stove until sugar is disolved.

Finally Combine:

- 8 c. Water
- 2 c. Lemon Juice
- Simple Syrup
- Raspberry Sauce

Serve chilled and garnish with orange and lemon slices!



  1. I love pink lemonade and look forward to trying out this recipe.

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. This looks great! I can't wait to make some! Thanks for posting the video. :)

  3. ooh now that just looks delicious!
    thanks for sharing your recipe ;)

  4. As an English person who has been reading a lot of books based in the American south (Louisiana mostly) I am fascinated with the concept of "iced tea" - I would love to see that made! As a rule we tend to only drink our tea hot, with milk - another thing that doesn't seem to be done in the books (it's always served black with lemon slices in the books). Really good video though, thanks for sharing :)
