Stir up a raspberry lime rickey

Quench your thirst on a hot summer day with this fresh, fruity beverage

Raspberry lime rickey

Perfect as a thirst-quencher for a hot summer’s day, you can also try a more sophisticated version by adding a dash of rum, gin or vodka to the mix.

Serves 6

  • 1½ cups (375 ml) fresh raspberries
  • 1 cup (250 ml) granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) cold water
  • 1 cup (250 ml) freshly squeezed lime juice (preferably key lime)
  • 1½ cups (375 ml) chilled limonata (Italian lemon soda)
  • 1½ cups (375 ml) chilled club soda
  • 3 cups (750 ml) crushed ice
  • 1 lime, cut into wheels for garnish
  • Mint sprigs and extra berries for garnish


In a small saucepan over low heat, mix together the raspberries and the sugar with ¼ cup (60 ml) cold water.

Stir to dissolve the sugar and soften the raspberries, pressing them against the side of the pan until they release their juices, about 4 minutes. Press the raspberry purée through a fine sieve into a pitcher.

Gently pour in the fresh lime juice, limonata and soda, stirring to combine. Serve over crushed ice in tall glasses garnished with a lime wheel, a sprig of fresh mint and a scattering of raspberries.
