Raspberry Limeade – A simple, 3 ingredient drink that is bright and refreshing. Homemade limeade with a raspberry simple syrup mixed in and served over ice.
On of my absolute favorite flavor combinations for summer is raspberry and lime. The sweetness of the raspberries and the tartness of the limes goes so perfectly together that it is good in everything from desserts to drinks. For this recipe, I wanted to make a simple raspberry limeade inspired by a fun summer drink that I like to get at restaurants. The only ingredients are fresh lime juice, water, and raspberry simple syrup. The raspberry simple syrup gives it the raspberry flavor and sweetness that the drink needs. You can either make it from scratch or buy it!
