Blackberry Lemonade Recipe

This delicious vibrant and thirst quenching blackberry lemonade recipe is made with fresh lemons and blackberries! 

Berry season is in full swing here in New Jersey and I absolutely love it. I wait all year long for this time of the year! My husband has been obsessively picking blackberries like they are going extinct.

We just canned one too many jars of Blackberry Jam and I was left with a whole mason jar of blackberry juice. It’s the most vibrant purple color!

If you are like us and love lemonade, you will need to try this Blackberry Lemonade! It’s such a fun way to jazz up boring day!

You can easily make the juice without canning, as the juices form before you add in the additional canning ingredients!
