raspberry lemonade spritzers

1 pound fresh raspberries
2-3 tbs sugar
2 litres lemonade
1 litre chilled club soda
In a medium bowl, gently toss raspberries together with sugar. Set aside for 1 hour, or refrigerate for up to a day. Divide berries into up to 10 glasses and fill with ice. Fill glasses 2/3 to the top with ice cold lemonade, then top with chilled club soda.
For Homemade Lemonade:
6-7 lemons
1 cup sugar
½ cup water
2 litres water
Zest one lemon and juice all lemons. In a medium pot, combine sugar and water. Place over medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Reduce heat to medium and continue simmering for about 4 minutes, until reduced to about ¾ cup. Stir zest and lemon juice into syrup. When completely cooled, stir mixture into 2 litres of ice cold water.
