- Blackberries - Granulated sugar - Water - Fresh lemon juice


Add the blackberries, sugar, and 1 cup of water to a small pot on high heat. Warm the water until the sugar dissolves, stirring frequently.

Pour the blackberry sugar water into a blender and blend on high. Strain the syrup through a fine-mesh sieve, pressing on the sieve to remove as much liquid as possible.

Add ice to a pitcher then pour in the strained blackberry syrup, the remaining 3 cups of cold water, and the lemon juice.

Serve the blackberry lemonade garnished with blackberries and lemon slices.
