Raspberry Limeade

This raspberry limeade is a variation on the strawberry lemonade I posted a little while back. Once I got started macerating fruit with sugar to make a syrup for drinks the possibilities seemed endless. Fruit, citrus, and sugar and you have the makings of the perfect summer drink. This is one of my favorite so far. Raspberry and lime are perfect companions, and taste just tropical enough that you can imagine you are sitting on a beach somewhere. This drink is definitely going into the rotation of shabbat afternoon treats, at least as long as summer lasts.

Ingredients

1 pound frozen raspberries

1 cup (7.5 oz) sugar

1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons (5 oz) fresh squeezed lime juice

4-6 cups water or sparkling water

Ice

Preparation

Place the raspberries in a container with a lid. Pour the sugar over the raspberries, cover with the lid and shake well to thoroughly combine them. Refrigerate overnight, shaking occasionally.

Combine the raspberry mixture, lime juice, 4 cups of water or seltzer and ice in a pitcher. Taste the mixture and add additional water or seltzer if desired.

I’m hosting my one year-old’s birthday party next week and this would be perfect for our pool party. Yum!

I made this using fresh raspberries. It was really really perfect for a friend who cannot have alcohol. Looks like sangria!

I have to start doing this, I love all these flavors and would love mixing it with seltzer too.

I can see that maceration may become a new technique I use – so simple! And besides cherries, raspberries are my 2nd favorite fruit!

How many limes would this recipe take? TIA

It depends on the size of the limes, but I would say 5 or 6. Roll them on the counter first so that more juice will come out and make sure they are at room temperature rather than refrigerated for the most juice.
