Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade

Recipe From: The Krazy Coupon Lady

4 cups water
1 pint (about 2 cups) raspberries, plus more for garnish
1 3/4 cups sugar
Classic Homemade Lemonade, or 1 quart store-bought lemonade (see how to get for free HERE)
Ice, for serving
1 bottle (750 milliliters) sparkling water

Bring water, raspberries, and sugar to boil in a large saucepan, stirring occasionally, until sugar dissolves.
Reduce heat, and let simmer for 15 minutes. Strain mixture through a fine sieve, pressing gently on berries to release juices; discard solids. Let syrup cool completely.

Combine syrup and lemonade in a large pitcher. Divide among 16 ice-filled glasses.

Top each with sparkling water, garnish with fresh raspberries.
