- 2 Cups fresh lime juice
- 2 Cups sugar
- 4 Cups water
- 3 Cups fresh Bing cherries
In a medium sauce pot, bring sugar and water to a simmer.
Allow time to cool; add lime juice.
Take 4 cups of the limeade mixture and combine with 2 cups fresh, seeded bing cherries. Puree in blender until smooth.
Strain; pour liquid into a rectangle baking dish and freeze.
Once frozen, using a fork, scrape the ice to create "shaved ice."
Fill glasses with cherry-lime raspado.
Pour remaining limeade over the top to fill the glass.
Garnish with fresh Bing cherry halves.
Our HEB now has aqua frescas. I tried a watermelon one and a cherry limeade. Both were a little bit of homemade heaven. I am still searching for a lime aqua fresca. If you happen to have a recipe I would love to get my hands on it. This drink was so yummy.
Here's to hoping the above recipe will begin to compare.
