Raspberry Lime Rickey

Lime Rickey's are a favorite of mine and this version is so yummy. It's perfect for summer bbq's and lazy days by the pool but it would also be a great drink to serve around the holidays just because of it's festive colors.
Raspberry Lime Rickey
Cooks Country
3 cups frozen raspberries ( 12 oz. package) or fresh raspberries
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
4 teaspoons grated zest and 1/2 cup juice from 4 limes
Seltzer or club soda chilled
Optional Limes and Maraschino cherries for garnish
1. MAKE SYRUP Heat raspberries, sugar, and water in saucepan over medium heat until raspberries begin to release their juices, about 5 minutes. Mash with potato masher until berries break down, then stir in lime zest and juice. Simmer until mixture is slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.
2. STRAIN AND SERVE Pour raspberry mixture through fine-mesh strainer set over bowl, pressing on solids to extract liquid (you should have about 2 1/2 cups). Discard berry solids. Refrigerate syrup until completely cool, at least 30 minutes or up to 1 week. To serve, combine 3/4 cup seltzer and 2 tablespoons syrup in tall, ice-filled glass. Makes 20 drinks.
