- Place the raspberries in a fine mesh sieve. Set over a large glass measure or pitcher.
- Pour the boiling water over the raspberries. Using the back of a spoon, press the berries to release the juices. When all juice is released, discard the berry pulp. Cover the juice and chill.

- Serve over additional ice cubes and garnish with lemon/lime slices if you like.
