Blackberry Raspberry Lemonade

Wild black raspberries grew up the entire length of the driveway, intertwined into a stone wall my grandfather had laid on our farm, all the way to our pig barn. We picked them often during the summer and froze them. I love growing some of our own berries to use in desserts, jams and specialty drinks like this one.
