The raspberry lemonade is an intense cocktail with distinct flavours and a refreshing taste. Made with just two ingredients, it’s as simple to make as it is tasty.
Sip it on those long, hot summer afternoons around the pool or while running the barbecue grill.
As a Pride cocktail, the raspberry lemonade and its colour represent hope, regeneration and growth. For example, some states are taking on legislation that discriminates against some members of the community, especially trans people.
But, despite the onslaught, there’s still hope. Unlike last year, there’s an administration mindful of the plight of the LGBTQ+ community. We’ve also learned, from past experiences, how to fight against encroachment on people’s fundamental rights.
As Covid gets under control in most places, there’s hope too of better social lives, and perhaps, even the grand comeback of Pride and other events.
