I love fancy drinks - so when I saw this recipe on Desire 2 Create I knew I had to try it. I tested it out on my sister and sister in law and between the 3 of us we downed the entire gallon in less than an hour. Sigh. It was THAT good.
Raspberry Lime Rickey
12 oz pkg frozen raspberries
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
4 tsp grated zest
1/2 cup fresh lime juice (juice from approx 4 limes)
2 liters club soda
In a saucepan combine raspberries, sugar and water. Cook until raspberries release their juices- about 5 minutes. Grate lime zest and sqeeze the juice from your limes. Add to raspberry mix and let cook until slightly thickened. Pour into bowl and let cool completely- about 30-45 minutes in fridge. Combine raspberry mix and club soda. Garnish with lime wedges and serve.
