Step-by-step

Grown-up steps
  1. In a small pot begin making the raspberry simple syrup. Bring the water, raspberries, lemon juice, and sugar to boil over medium-high heat. Stir, and simmer for about 5 minutes, turn off heat and let it cool completely.
  2. Strain the simple syrup into an airtight container.
  3. Fill the bottom ¼ of a pitcher with ice cubes.
  4. Pour in the lemonade and mango juice.
  5. Add raspberries and lemon wedges (if using) and stir to combine.
  6. Add more ice cubes to individual cups and pour in 2 tablespoons of raspberry simple syrup.
  7. Slowly fill the rest of the cup with the lemonade, and stir gently. Watch the magic happen, and drink up! (You can use the extra syrup as a topping for ice cream, pancakes, and more!)
