Raspberry-Ginger Limeade Recipe

Raspberry Ginger Limeade

The heat is on and nothing is more refreshing than a glass if ice-cold Lemonade in the sun. I like my limeade strong, but feel free to add more water to soften the taste a little, or use lemons instead of limes.
This limeade also makes a perfect mixer for summer cocktails and mimosas!

Happy Summer Ya’ll
