Ingredients
  • 5 cups water, divided
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 lemons, quartered (organic preferred)
  • 2 limes, quartered, plus extra for garnish (organic preferred)
  • 3 ounces raspberries, about 1 pint, plus more to garnish
  • Ice
  • 1 bunch fresh mint
  • 8 ounces vodka
Directions

In a small saucepan over high heat, add 1 cup water and the sugar and heat to a simmer. Stir to melt the sugar, turn off the heat, and allow the simple syrup to cool.

Cut the lemons and limes into 8 pieces.

In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the bottom blade, add the lemons and limes and process until finely ground, about 2 minutes. Add in the simple syrup, pulse a few times, add in 2 cups of water and pulse again. Add in the raspberries and pulse to combine.

Strain through a fine mesh strainer into a glass bowl or pitcher. Add the remaining 2 cups water and chill.

Add 1/2 cup ice and about 10 mint leaves to a cocktail shaker. Muddle the mint, add in 8 ounces of lemon-lime-raspberry mixture, and 2 ounces vodka. Shake to combine. Strain into a glass filled with ice and garnish with mint, a lime wedge, and a couple of fresh raspberries. Repeat as needed.
