Raspberry Limeade

Here in Korea, the high for today is 65 degrees... SIXTY-FIVE.  Oh, how happy this makes me.  Summer is right around the corner, folks, and I'm ready for it.  So in honor of this beautiful weather, I felt the need to make up something cheerful and summery.  I saw this recipe a couple weeks ago on FoodGawker, and I've had it saved for a special day like today.  I'm all about some limeade and some fruity summer drinks...

Raspberry Limeade
recipe from Taylor Takes a Taste
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (6 or 7 limes)
  • 1/2 cup pureed raspberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
In a large pot, dissolve 1 cup sugar in 1 cup water over medium heat.  Stir until completely dissolved, then turn heat on low, creating a simple syrup.

In a food processor (or blender) puree raspberries.  Add lemon and lime juice and puree for a few more seconds.   Add raspberry mixture to the simple syrup and stir until combined.

Pour through a strainer into a separate pot to get rid of the seeds.  Then combine with 3 cups of water and stir over low heat until completely combined.  Transfer to a container of your choice, and serve over ice.  Garnish with lime slices.  Makes approx. 40 ounces.
