Vodka Lemonade

1 c sugar
1 c water
3/4 c raspberries, pureed
1 c fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 c vodka
4-6 c cold water

Combine sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat, swirling the pan occasionally until the sugar is dissolved. Let the simple syrup cool completely.

Puree the raspberries in a blender. Combine the raspberry puree, simple syrup, lemon juice and vodka in a large pitcher.

Add between 4 and 6 cups of water, depending on how sweet or tart you want the lemonade. Stir well and serve over ice!
