Cherry Lime Raspado

Ingredients
  • 2 Cups fresh lime juice
  • 2 Cups sugar
  • 4 Cups water
  • 3 Cups fresh Bing cherries
Method
In a medium sauce pot, bring sugar and water to a simmer.
 
Allow time to cool; add lime juice.
 
Refrigerate.
 
Raspado:
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."
 
To serve:
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.
