I am so excited to share with your all my new favorite beverage…soon be your favorite too 😉 We created this recipe with summer in mind and we think that is the perfect beverage for parties or picnics.

The best part is that this requires just 4 simple ingredients:

This recipe combines the perfect amount of sweetness from the dates + tartness of the lemons and is balanced out nicely with a refreshing infusion of mint–which is optional but highly recommended.

We created this recipe as a part of our “No-Cook Summer Recipes” video on our YouTube channel. We also featured a Mexican-Inspired Pinwheels and Easy 7-Ingredient Antipasto Skewers if you want more no-cook recipe ideas!

    Given that my raspberries have arrived with a boom this year, I think they will work just as well as the strawberries. I’ll let you know! This looks fabulous!
