    Finely chop mint, and rub into sugar OR pulse mint and sugar in food processor. Place mint sugar in 1-quart saucepan with raspberries and 1/4 cup water. Heat over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves, raspberries break down, and mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat, and strain through fine mesh strainer. Set raspberry mint syrup aside to cool.

Expert Tips

  • Use the syrup to taste, scaling up or down, depending on how tart you like your limeade.
  • For a full adult version, add the alcohol straight to the pitcher of limeade. To keep it family friendly, serve shots on the side, and add to each drink as needed.
  • Pulsing or rubbing the mint into the sugar releases essential oils and makes the syrup that much more minty.
