{DRINK} Raspberry Lime Refresher

Sadly, summer is quickly coming to an end.  As much as I enjoy the long summer days and relaxing pool side with a delicious drink in hand, I am eager to jump into fall.  Fall means shorter days, sipping pumpkin spice coffee while curled up on the couch, and wearing boots and scarves as the weather grows colder.  Unfortunately for me, it is still 95 degrees in my neck of the woods so my warm drinks and boots will have to wait. 

In the meantime, here is one last summer drink to try before we all over load on pumpkin spiced....everything.

Raspberry Lime Refresher





RECIPE:
10 limes
1 lemon
 1 bag of frozen raspberries
2 bottles of sparkling water 
2 cups of sugar
2 cups of water

Juice limes and lemon.  Puree raspberries until smooth. Pour raspberries through mesh strainer for a smoother constancy.  Make a simple syrup with sugar and tap water by heating in a small sauce pan until sugar is dissolved.  Let simple syrup cool and add to lime/lemon juice and raspberries.  Stir and slowly add sparkling water.  Pour over ice and enjoy!

Simply Made by,
Stephanie
