Need a new refreshing drink to enjoy on the next warm and sunny day?

Here's one that's sure to be delicious and delightful to have!


1 1/2 cups fresh, crushed raspberries
1 cup simple syrup (3/4 cup sugar + 3/4 cup water, heated to dissolve)
1/2 cup torn basil leaves
1 cup fresh lime juice
1 cup pineapple juice
1 liter club soda
Lime slices to garnish


Pour the cooled simple syrup in a large pitcher and add the torn basil leaves. Use a large spoon/ladle to muddle the basil leaves so they release their flavor--beat them up pretty well.

Add the lime juice, pineapple juice and raspberries. Stir. Add a few lime slices to float around and look pretty!

Add the club soda, stir, and top with ice if the pitcher allows.

To serve: Garnish each glass with lime slices. Serve over ice or chilled without ice.
