Blackberry Limeade

27 06 2011

I am a big fan of Sonic’s cherry limeades and I know it is just Sprite with a bit of grenadine in it. There is just something about them that I love! So this week when we got a basket full of limes I knew I had to make limeade. I found several recipes and kind of mixed them all together to get what I think was a pretty awesome drink. All the flavors mixed well together for a refreshing summer time drink.


Blackberry Limeade

~ 4 cups fresh blackberries or unsweetened frozen blackberries, thawed.

~ 1 cup sugar

~ 1 Tbsp. lime zest

~ 1/2 cup fresh lime juice (about 6-8 limes)

~ 2 cups ginger ale

~ thin lime slices, for garnish

1. In a blender add the blackberries and a couple tablespoons water. Puree blackberries. Then using a fine mesh strainer, strain blackberries into pitcher.

2. In a small sauce pan, combine the sugar, 1 cup water, and lime zest. Bring to a boil then simmer over low heat for about 10 minutes, or until the sugar is dissolved. Add sugar mixture to blackberry puree and refrigerate until cold.

3. To serve, stir in ginger ale (or sparkling water, or water) into the pitcher. Fill glasses with ice and pour I the blackberry limeade. Garnish with slices of lime.
