Thirsty Thursday: Raspberry Lime Rickey

One of my favorite things to do in the summer is to go to Brimfield Antique Show. I love wandering around the dusty fields packed full of vendors while I find some great treasures to take home. Last year was a banner year. It was incredible. We rocked it.

Well, besides the fun things I find at Brimfield, I love getting Raspberry Lime Rickey’s there. I get them every year from the same vendor. I can’t imagine going and not getting one to sip on while browsing the near by porch full of old books. Just makes a visit complete.

So I couldn’t pass up a chance to make a Raspberry Lime Rickey while featuring berries for this month’s Thirsty Thursday posts. This is a perfect way to enjoy a refreshing drink while enjoying fresh spring raspberries.
