Mixed Berry Lemonade

Do you have any plans to celebrate Patriot's Day? If you live in Massachusetts and Maine, Patriot's Day is an observed state holiday. The children have no school. Battles of the American Revolutionary War are reenacted. One of the oldest annual marathon is happening in Boston. If one is interested, they can see a Boston Red Sox Game at Fenway. Or one can just relax and enjoy a drink of their choice. This drink is one of my favorite drinks. I love lemonade and I love berries so this is my ideal drink next to ice tea. 
Mixed Berry Lemonade
5 large lemons
1 1/2 cups frozen mixed berries
1 1/4 cups sugar
6 cups cold water

  1. Using a juicer or squeezer, squeeze the lemons to extract the juice into a pitcher. (Make sure to remove the seeds-it is easier to do it now.)
  2. Defrost the berries for a few seconds in a microwave or under warm water.
  3. Place half of the mixed berries with the sugar into the pitcher. 
  4. Smash the berries a few times.
  5. Add the remaining berries with the water. Mix well.
