Really yummy! I omitted the sugar so that guests can sweeten to their own taste. I ended up with more of the raspberry puree than I needed, so I froze the leftovers in ice cube trays. Now I just add a cube to a glass of regular iced tea and I have instant Raspberry-Lime Iced Tea. Brilliant! P.S. It helps to zap the cube for about 10 seconds in the microwave before adding to the glass.
DH and I thought this was a gorgeous red drink, but it didn't quite pack the flavor we expected. It tasted like watered-down tea with pureed raspberries. We couldn't taste the lime juice at all. Also, I found it difficult to strain the pureed raspberries when they were still a little frozen, so I would recommend completely defrosting or using fresh berries. Because I couldn't strain the raspberries, I ended up adding them to the pitcher seeds and all. The texture was nice--a little like a smoothie. Even though it was not what we expected, it was still yummy and refreshing on a hot summer day. Thanks for a lovely idea. (Made for Summer Comfort Cafe 2009)
This is a delicious recipe. All I had on hand was a package of tripe berry (raspberry, blackberry, and blueberry). I used that. Also used Splenda and cut it to 4 tablespoons. Didn't strain it. Didn't even have a blender so I just mashed them up good. It is beautiful and delicious. Will keep some in the refrigerator during hot weather. Thank you so much!

I once worked at an Indian restaurent and loved it so much I set out to learn how to do it. I have been so far successful with the exception of mastering a lentil dish called "Dahl". I also love mexican food as well as spanish "tapas". Right now I am trying to perfect the Korean dish Kimchi. I run a 900 psychic line which I do from home so while I am on the phone, constantly, I can also cook. I have recently become a vegetarian but the rest of my family hasn't so my challenge is to cook to all of our tastes.
