Raspberry Limeade Slushies

What kind of cruel person posts a delicious looking raspberry limeade slushy recipe after raspberry season is over? I decided I couldn't wait for raspberry season to come back and bought some frozen raspberries (and also used bottled lime juice ... cheating I know!). This drink tastes like summer ... even if summer very sadly seems to have abandoned us this weekend. With non-fresh ingredients, it will also be possible to recreate this in the dead of winter to channel summer ... although ice-cold drinks will likely seem less appetizing then! This makes a full pitcher, so if you want to keep the slushiness, make sure to make it for friends, otherwise you'll need to scale down!

Raspberry Limeade Slushies (from Smitten Kitchen)

1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (or bottled)
1 cup raspberries (fresh or frozen)
1 cup water
4 cups ice
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup soda water

1. In a blender, blend the lime juice, raspberries, water, ice and sugar until slushy.
2. Pour into glasses.
3. Top off with about 1/4 cup soda water in each glass.
