Scale

Ingredients

  • 3 cups water
  • 1/2 cup honey, or more to taste
  • 20 mint leaves (from 34 sprigs), plus more for garnish
  • 2 cups fresh raspberries
  • 2 cups fresh lemon juice (from about 11 medium lemons)
  • 3 1/2 cups sparkling water, chilled

Instructions

  1. To make the simple syrup, begin by heating 3 cups of water, 1/2 cup honey, and mint leaves in a medium saucepan over moderate heat. Continue heating, stirring frequently, until honey is fully incorporated and dissolved.
  2. Cover and let steep for 15 minutes. Strain out mint leaves and set syrup aside.
  3. Puree 2 cups fresh raspberries in a blender. Strain through a fine mesh strainer to remove seeds. Set aside.
  4. In a tall pitcher, combine honey water with lemon juice and strained raspberry puree. Stir to combine.
  5. Chill mixture in the refrigerator until very cold, about 4 hours. Serve 5 ounces in each glass, topped with 3 ounces sparkling water.
  6. Garnish with mint and serve.
