Mix it Up: Raspberry Limeade Slushies

Perfect for these hot summer days we are having- just grab yourself the ingredients below and whallah, you have a refreshing limey beverage! You can even add your own alcohol to make your own adult version! (humm tequila perhaps?)

Raspberry Limeade Slushies
Serves 4, generously


1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1 cup raspberries
1 cup water
4 cups ice
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup soda water
Lime wedges, for serving


4 chilled glasses, if you’re feeling fancy (or are interested in your slushie staying slushy longer)
In a blender, blend the lime juice, raspberries, water, ice and sugar until slushy.

Pour into glasses. Top off with about 1/4 cup soda water and garnish with a lime wedge. If you’re averse to raspberry seeds (I generally am, but was feeling rushed that day), you can puree the berries first, press them through a fine-mesh strainer to remove the seeds, then put them back in the blender and add the rest of the ingredients. I will note that the seeds were far less annoying than I’d expected them to be, likely because they’re less noticeable with the added texture from the ice.

Hope you enjoy it! I can't wait to try it out!
