Raspberry Lemon Freeze with Fresh Rosemary

If you are so lucky as to have raspberry bushes overflowing with fresh raspberries, please, please, make this drink out of some of them. (And freeze as many raspberries as you can to brighten the dark cold months of winter.) I am not so blessed, so I use frozen raspberries in this icy cold summer drink.

It’s simple to make this freeze (that’s what I call a summer drink thickened with ice), which is important when you’re hot and thirsty. Combine the juice of two lemons (including pulp), a bag of frozen raspberries, a teaspoon of stevia, a lot of ice and a tablespoon of fresh rosemary leaves in a blender. Whoosh, then pour into tall glasses.

Rosemary adds a dry, subtle note to the tart flavors of both lemon and raspberry in this freeze, which is not overly sweet. If you’re making this drink for children, you may want to substitute fresh mint for rosemary, and add extra stevia to make it sweeter.
