Float Party and Raspberry Key Lime Italian Soda
1 lb of raspberries
1 cup of white granulated sugar
2 key limes
1/3 cup of water
In a small sauce pot, over medium heat, combine raspberries and sugar. Mix well.
Zest the key limes and add zest to the pot.
Add the juice of key limes as well and mix well.
After a couple of minutes on heat, start mashing the berries with a wooden spoon. Mash all the berries well.
Add water and mix well. Keep the berry mixture simmering for about 5-7 minutes, stirring often.
Strain the mixture through a fine strainer to remove the seeds and solids.
Fill the glasses with club soda, about 3/4 way up. Add about 2 tbs of raspberry syrup per glass (more if you like it sweeter.)
