- 2 cups (500 ml) water
- 14 oz (400 g) fresh or frozen and thawed raspberries
- 3/4 cup (200 ml) freshly squeezed lime juice (approx. 10 limes)
- 2 liters club soda
- Lime slices and raspberries for garnish
- Combine the sugar, water, and raspberries in a saucepan over low heat.
- Stir until the sugar has melted, and crush the berries with a wooden spoon. Let simmer for a few minutes before removing the pot from the stove.
- Strain the seeds and let the liquid cool.
- Pour the lime juice and club soda into the raspberry mix.
- Pour into glasses with ice and garnish with a slice of lime and a few raspberries. Or, fill clean, recycled glass bottles and serve with a stripy straw.
A treat for both children and adults.
