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.
Raspberry Lime Rickey
- 1/2 dry pint of raspberries
- 1/2 cup simple syrup
- 2 limes, halved
- 32 oz of seltzer water
- Blend together the raspberries and the simple syrup. Straining the mixture is preferred.
- Pour in 1/4 of the raspberry sauce into a tall glass. Add the juice of half a lime to the syrup and add it to the glass. Then add a cup of ice and the seltzer. Mix and enjoy!

You’re always out doing something fun. Im a little jealous. Ok a lot jealous. I also have no idea what a Ricky is but I want one… as long as he’s hot ;D
Just made them tonight. It was so yummy! My fiancee is from New England and he always talks about this drink. He was very excited when I made it and enjoyed it very much
