Method

  1. Peel the zest from the lemons, using a swivel-head vegetable peeler. Try not to get any white pith. Squeeze the juice from the lemons. Put the zest, lemon juice and sugar in a heatproof jug.
  2. Pour in 600ml (1 pint) boiling water and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Add the mashed raspberries. Cover and leave to cool completely.
  3. Strain the mixture into a serving jug. Dilute with about 300ml (½ pint) chilled water and sweeten with extra sugar, if you like. Add plenty of ice, lemon slices, raspberries and mint.
