This Limeade is a summertime staple for my family! When I have fresh raspberries in the garden (or the grocery store!) I love being able to make a quick puree and adding it in my sparkling water or freezing it if I have leftovers!
Lime Raspberry Water
Limeade is a summertime staple. Try this sweet twist on the standard limeade with homemade raspberry puree and Lime oil. This sweet and tangy drink is the perfect treat on any warm summer day.
- 2 cups raspberries
- 1/2 cup sugar or honey
- 1 cup water
- sparkling water
- lime oil
In a small saucepan, combine first 3 puree ingredients.
Cook until sugar has dissolved.
Cool and strain.
To serve, add raspberry puree (around two tablespoons), ice, juice of one lime, and one to two drops Lime oil to a glass. Top with sparkling water.
Garnish with limes and raspberries.
Tip: This recipe makes about two cups of puree and you only need to put one to two tablespoons into each cup, dividing the sugar between approximately 20 servings. If you prefer, you could also substitute the sugar with honey or add more raspberries.
