Here’s the simple ‘how-to’s’ for making Beetle Juice:

Cut the lemons in half. Squeeze the lemon juice from the lemons. If you have a citrus juicer simply squeeze the juice right into a blender pitcher. If you have to squeeze by hand, squeeze the juice into a glass or bowl first so that you can extract any seeds before adding the juice to the blender.

Add the ice, lemon juice, water, honey, raspberries and extracts into the blender and blend well.

Add ¼ cup triple berry seltzer to a glass. Top it with ¾ cup of the raspberry blended lemonade mixture.

NOTE:  If you want to add a little dessert style fun add sherbet brains to the mix.  If you want to keep it healthy, freeze some of the beetle juice without the seltzer in ice molds of either brains or bugs and add them to your finished drink before serving.
