Strawberry Limeade & Raspberry Lemonade

Strawberry Limeade.. Could be me favorite drink, I love the version at a fast food drive-up chain, and wanted to figure out how to make it myself. Raspberry Lemonade, is a close second!

For Spring parties such as bridal showers and summer cookouts with friends, I love to make a batch of each and label the pitchers. I also float Strawberries and Lime slices in the Limeade pitcher and Raspberries and Lemon Slices in the other, Not only is it pretty, it pretty much "labels" itself!  I always bring in empty pitchers and requests for the recipes!

Jan's Tip: Want to make it "Sparkling"? Just substitute 2 Liters of club soda or sparkling water chilled for the cold water in the recipe!

Here's how I make them!

To Make Raspberry Lemonade: I am listing the ingredients for the Strawberry Limeade. Just substitute Lemonade for the Limeade and Raspberries for the Strawberries in the recipe
