Yield: 8 servings (8 ounces each)
- ¾ cup fresh blackberries
- ¾ cup fresh blueberries
- ¾ cup fresh raspberries
- ¾ cup superfine sugar
- ¾ cup cassis or blackcurrant liqueur
- ¼ cup plus 8 additional fresh mint leaves
- 2 cups lime juice, freshly squeezed
- 3 cups cold water
- 8 slices lime, cut ¼-inch thick
In a blender, combine the berries, sugar, cassis, and mint.
Pulse just until the berries are crushed, but not fully pureed.
Pour mixture into a 2-quart pitcher or large mixing bowl. Add lime
juice and water. Taste and adjust sweetness with additional sugar
if necessary. Chill mixture completely.
To serve, pour the mixture into tall glasses filled
with ice. Garnish with a mint leaf and a slitted slice of lime on
the edge of each glass.
Note: To make the limeade more potent,
add ¾ cup citron vodka.
