Here are the ingredients you'll need:

Muddle raspberries and cucumbers. Drop the mixture into the bottom of a frosty glass. The frostier, the better.

Top the glass with Razz Lime Shimmer Seltzer, then slowly stir. Serve this drink with a sprig of rosemary and a lime rind.

Homemade Limeade Tips

When making homemade limeade, it's all about getting the perfect tart-to-sweet ratio. If you like things tarter than sweet, go heavy on the lime juice. 

If you prefer a sweeter limeade, you can also add a pinch of salt. The salt will reduce the acidity and make your drink more vibrant.

The same principle works for lemonade too!
