The best thing about this drink is that it’s a punch.
That means lots of lovely fruit at the bottom when you’ve finished. As you get close to the end, the flavour gets more intense – particularly the lime and the raspberries. And rather than let them go to waste, keep a long skewer handy so you can spear the berries.
Again, you can make a cut down version for 1:
Handful of berries and mint leaves
About 125ml raspberry cranberry juice
About 125ml soda water
I used frozen raspberries and some blueberries and strawberries that really needed using up.
Mint leaves are growing nicely in my garden – the possum has been ignoring them lately.
And I cut a slice of lime for decoration, then juiced the rest.
Stir and serve. Another great recipe that didn’t need any special preparation.
