Refreshing Raspberry Cooler


Weather being extremely unpredictable here.... one day we have extreme hot noon with temperature above 80 all the day, the other day its raining all over the day with 48-55 F temp all day around. Even what i see on weather channels is turning out to be incorrect :( . And I keep on switching on from chilling juices to piping hot soups...
ha ha ha....

On one such hot day ,I thought to treat myself with some nice cooling drink. Thinking on what to make I noticed I had some Raspberries in the fridge. Now a days I keep bringing mint from store every time I do grocery , just the presence of it makes me feel refreshing :). I took a spring of it ,

In a mixture bowl crushed raspberries , mint leaves and a tsp lemon juice with little bit sugar adding a glass of cool water. Strained it in a jug and after keeping it in fridge for another half an hour I had the most refreshing drink ever to enjoy this summer that summer day :D.

I enjoyed one glass of it, and kept another for D to welcome him with :).

Now the final stage is of naming it. Any ideas on what to call this colorful drink ?

Well , just for time being I call it Refreshing Raspberry Cooler. As that came straight from my heart after finishing it all in a single gulp :)) .

As Dee- a berry lover, is hosting AFAM-Raspberries this month, this is off to Dee to be a part of this lovely event :) .
