Make Some Raspberry Limeade

This bright dark pink drink will be refreshing even on the hottest of days!

Raspberry Limeade

1 c fresh or frozen raspberries

1/3 – 1/2 c simple syrup*

3 juicy limes, juiced

5 c cold water

Puree the raspberries and put juice into a pitcher. Discard seeds. Add in lime juice and simple syrup and cold water. Stir and taste making any adjustments to sweetener or lime juice. Serve over ice.

* Simple syrup is an equal mixture of water and white sugar combined over heat to make a syrup. It’s simple! I usually take 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar and mix them over medium-high heat until it just starts to boil. Once it completely melted, remove from heat and cool. I store it in a jar in the fridge to use for all kinds of drinks.
