Raspberry Limeade

August 2, 2013

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.

    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.
