The Raspberry Lime Rickey is a classic summer drink that is both refreshing and delicious. It is made with a combination of raspberries, lime juice, and carbonated water, and is typically served over ice. The drink is tart and sweet, with a slightly fizzy finish.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 liter carbonated water
  • Ice cubes

Instructions:

  1. To make the raspberry syrup, combine the raspberries, lime juice, and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes, or until the raspberries have broken down and the syrup has thickened slightly.
  2. Remove the syrup from the heat and let it cool completely.
  3. To make the Raspberry Lime Rickey, fill a tall glass with ice cubes. Add 1/4 cup of the raspberry syrup and 1/4 cup of carbonated water. Stir to combine.
  4. Garnish with a raspberry and a lime wedge. Serve immediately.

Tips:

  • For a more intense raspberry flavor, use frozen raspberries instead of fresh raspberries.
  • If you don’t have lime juice on hand, you can use lemon juice instead.
  • To make a non-alcoholic Raspberry Lime Rickey, simply omit the vodka.
