Serves 4 (serving size: 1 1/2 cups)

Red raspberries' juicy, perfumey, sweet flavor peaks from late June through August and is just right for this summer cooler. We spiked the drink with an herbaceous, citrusy gin that's distilled in small batches in Philadelphia. You can also omit the gin for a refreshing mocktail.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups ice cubes
  • 1 1/2 cups sparkling water
  • 1/2 cup gin (such as Bluecoat American Dry Gin)
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 8 ounces fresh raspberries, frozen
  • Lime wedges (optional)
