Raspberry Limeade

My dear friend treated me to a Sonic limeade a couple of weeks ago and can I just share that it was absolutely FAB.U.LOUS? It's all I think about when I am out and about running errands trying to justify my "need" to purchase one. Good thing the closest Sonic to me is all the way across town. A&W has a limeade as well (which isn't quite as good IMHO) but is only about a mile away. So after three days last week of "justifying" myself, I decided to try making them at home. Not too bad if I do say so myself! All I had were raspberries, and it was quite tasty. And probably much fresher.

You will need:

Limeade (I just used the frozen concentrate, mixed as directed)
Lemon Lime Soda
Lime for Garnish (of course that is optional--it just makes for pretty picture)

To start, I had some raspberries in my freezer that needed using up and also needed to thaw for this purpose. So I took about 3/4 cup and generously sprinkled with sugar:

Once these thawed, I mashed them up and tasted them. Still a little tart, so I was generous with the sugar once again.

To mix the drink, fill a glass with ice. I found the best ratio is 1 part limeade to 2 parts soda. Then add about a tablespoon of raspberries and mix thoroughly. Garnish with a lime wedge and enjoy!

This looks fabulous! I had a Sonic limeade during "Happy Hour" and thought they were least they are half off then! LOL! I am definitely going to try your version though! Thanks for sharing.
