Limeade is a staple in the summertime! Try this sweet twist on the standard limeade with homemade raspberry puree and Lime essential 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
Note: This recipe makes about 2 cups of puree and you only need to put 1-2 tablespoons into each cup. So the 1/2 cup of sugar will be divided into about 20 cups of limeade. If you prefer, you could also substitute the sugar with honey or add more raspberries.
1. In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup water, 1/2 cup sugar or honey, and 2 cups raspberries.
2. Cook until sugar has dissolved. Cool and strain.
3. To serve, add raspberry puree (around 2 tablespoons), ice, juice of one lime, and 1-2 drops Lime essential oil to a glass. Top with sparkling water.
4. Garnish with limes and raspberries. Enjoy!
