Mulberry Lemonade is a very refreshing drink perfect for the summer. Made using fresh mulberries, this drink will chill you down. Here is how to make it.
Mulberry Lemonade is a classic Summer drink which for me has become nothing less than a luxury as mulberries are rarely available these days.
When my son asked me the other day, “What are Mulberries, Mom?”, I could only sigh.
I explained to him how they look and taste but was assured that he’ll never be able to taste the fruit as I have myself not eaten it for a long long time and have not seen it in the markets anywhere.
When we were kids, there was a huge Mulberry tree in my grandparents’ backyard and we cared less for the fruit.
Mulberry Lemonade was prepared in our household almost every day and we would savor it with joy.
Mulberries were available so abundantly that they were given no importance. But now the fruit has almost become exotic and very hard to find.
So, the other day, when I saw it available on one of the online grocery stores I immediately ordered my share of mulberries.
My joy knew no bounds when my son tasted the fruit and liked it.
We finished half of it for our evening snack and saved the half to make this delicious Mulberry Lemonade that my mom used to make for us when we were kids.
Mulberry Lemonade is perfect for the summer and is very refreshing as well.
With the basic ingredients at hand and availability of Mulberries, you can make it in no time.
So, without wasting time, take note of this recipe for Mulberry Lemonade and make it this summer.
I would suggest that if mulberries are not available near your location then you may prepare Jaljeera as well to beat the heat.

Growing up in Iowa we were surrounded by mulberry trees and every summer the bottoms of my feet were always stained purple. We would make mulberry pie, but never thought of making a drink out of it. I now have a mulberry tree in my backyard here in LA and will give your drink a try when they come into season.
we have mulberry trees all around our neighborhood, and just went picking last night. I can’t wait to try this!
How far north do you live? When i lived in Malawi I cut some twigs from a friend’s mulberry tree and they rooted and produced fruit within 4 months. I aklmost immediatley had a mulberry hedge which in teh subtropics of Malawi ( we lived on a tea plantation) bre fruit for over six months each year.
Here in UK 2 hours north of london it took 4 years for a tree i bought at 6feet high to produce fruit. This year the fruit is bvery heavy, and i am too old and fat to get up the ladder. I made your lemonade with stevia not sugar.
In Turkey i saw a white mulberry tree. Same flavour but no colour but i cannot find a source of that tree. We also used to be able to buy dried white mulberries froma wholefood shop in Norwich.
I live in central India Catherine. Good to know that your tree is bearing fruits now.
I have mulberry trees growing all around me. Tried it and it came out amazing.
Happy to hear 🙂
