Homemade Strawberry-Raspberry Lemonade

This rendition of homemade lemonade is tart but you can add more sugar to taste.  The splash of strawberry or raspberry purée adds a summery sweetness which is a perfect balance to the tartness of the lemon.  I used a strawberry purée and garnished the lemonade with fresh raspberries. (You can add another fruit of your choice, such as blueberries for homemade blueberry lemonade).
