With the temperatures slowly climbing and the heat kicking in, Summer is finally here. What better way to cool off than with a cold refreshing drink. I decided to make something with my favourite flavour....no points for guessing which flavour :-D
Raspberry Lemon Sparklers:
You will need:
1 ½ Cup Raspberries (fresh/frozen)
1 tbsp Lemon juice
Plain Soda or Sprite
Mint Sprigs for garnish
In a medium bowl, mash the raspberries with the sugar. Let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in 3/4 cup water, then strain into a jug, pressing with the back of a spoon to extract all of the liquid. Stir in the lemon juice and add 2 cups more water.
Fill glasses halfway with ice, pour the extracted juice over the ice and top off with little bit of the soda. Garnish with mint sprigs and a few fresh raspberries (if you are using fresh).
