Blackberry Lemonade

This blackberry lemonade came out more of a watermelon color, just something I noticed. :) I'm glad to have used my blackberry syrup that I made yesterday for this! The blackberries bring a new twist to all the lemonade I've been drinking recently. 

I'd like to think I'm getting an extra boost of nutrients form the blackberries, even if they are consumed by sugar. Wishful thinking? Probably, I'm good for that.

Either way, I'm making my little contribution to the lemonade community but there are many other creative and unique lemonades out there like this, this and this.
