Sparkling Raspberry – An Easy and Refreshing Summer Drink

Sparkling Raspberry   An Easy and Refreshing Summer Drink // wishfulchef.comIf you’re wondering why I haven’t posted in a while, it was because my husband and I spontaneously took a trip up to Montréal for a few days! I suggest you go visit soon if you haven’t yet. It’s a beautiful city with friendly people and an amazing food and beer culture. I feel stuffed just thinking about all the food we ate (and beer we drank). When we got home, all I wanted to do was drink water! With that said, here is an easy and refreshing drink using fresh raspberries. The perfect drink to start Summer.

This drink is perfect to make right now, as raspberries are in season. Feel free to mix in some strawberries as well, I’m sure it would taste great. For this recipe, I didn’t add much sweetness, so feel free to adjust the sugar amount to your taste.
