Spiriteds, we’ve been immersing ourselves in sparkling water the last several recipes. If you are wondering what I’m talking about, then dive into Blackberry Lemon Sparkling Water and Blueberry Sparkling Water recipes. Because today we are diving into Raspberry Lime Sparkling Water. Like Strawberry Lime Sparkling Water, this recipe is delicious with fresh or frozen fruit. Frozen raspberries make excellent ice cubes in the middle of summer. And they melt into a tantalizing flavor. For added punch, sprinkle a dash of ginger in your drink and methodically sip away.
While this sparkling water recipe tastes best chilled and just after it’s prepared, I must say it starts to turn a beautiful shade of pinky red as it sits. Mouthwatering flavor + beautiful color? Well, I’m sold.
Raspberry Lime Sparkling Water just oozes summer vibes. I’m thinking a sparkling water bar is in order. Friends can mix and match their own drinks (try this article for suggestions) and while away the summer hours lost in thought or conversation.
And is there any reason we can have our own sparkling water smorgasbord? Because, honestly, these drinks go really well with summer and friends, for sure! But they also go well with books. Also, the word is “smorgasbord,” not “smorgasborg.” Because words are tricky and math is hard.
I do my best.
But if we are getting to sip and savor a Raspberry Lime Sparkling Water, do we even care about the “bord” versus “borg” conundrum? Because all I really want is to enjoy the fruits of my labor. In this case, entirely literally.
For Raspberry Lime Sparkling Water, I’m big on ice (not joking about keeping this one chilled), meh on sweetener (raspberries stand on their own two feet, or something), and all about the lime (extra wedges are a total sour pucker bonus). And did I mention the color? Because it is something to behold. And who doesn’t want to savor a pretty drink? Because every now and then, we just need to treat ourselves. And this beverage? Well, it gets that.
