During high school, I worked at an ice cream stand and it was a blast! It was some of the most fun I had as a teenager. I know, it’s pathetic. But while I worked there, I discovered my love for raspberry lime rickeys. But rather than using soda water, I had them with Sprite. Since I stopped working there years ago, I think I had one or two raspberry lime rickeys, and then I discovered them again at Mann Orchards. So then I thought, rather than buy a bottled version, I can certainly make my own.
Making the raspberry syrup is incredibly easy. The hardest part is having to wait for it to cool so you can make the drink!
This makes a perfect summer drink. And what’s great about making it yourself is you can add the amount of syrup you desire to an ice filled glass of seltzer.
Although I would have loved to have Sprite, I need to stay away from soda because I am pregnant. However, the seltzer is just as delicious!
I hope everyone’s summer is off to a good start. Enjoy these refreshing drinks to keep cool!
