Raspberry Limeade [Recipe]
Are you ready for something delicious? And refreshing? And easy?
In this hot weather, I sure am! This is such a great recipe to whip up for yourself quickly on a hot day, or to mix up in a larger batch for a crowd. The mason jar method is a quick way to make a small amount, but stirring in a large pitcher for more servings will do the same thing, it just might take a couple minutes longer.
Tip: Buy your raspberries on sale ahead of time, and freeze them with This Tutorial to be ready for use all summer long!
Here’s how it’s done! 🙂
1 c. water
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 c. lime juice (1 to 1-1/2 limes)
Handful fresh or frozen raspberries
In the bottom of a 1-pint mason jar, measure out your sugar. Add the lime juice and water.
Tip: Use freshly squeezed lime juice for a much fresher taste!
Put the lid on the mason jar, and shake it like the dickens! Just until the sugar is dissolved.
Next, remove the lid, and throw in a handful of fresh or frozen raspberries. I like mine frozen, personally. 🙂 Shake it up a few more times.
Add some ice, garnish with a slice of lime, and there you go!
