We shelved our fresh lime plans when we saw some Newman's Own Limeade, which we like because it's not too sweet and pairs well with liquor. We almost stopped there — limeade and vodka sounded just delightful, frankly — but then saw some raspberries.
A friend manned the blender, and she reports that the finished drink is two parts each of vodka and limeade, plus 3 parts ice. Blend, then throw in a handful of raspberries and blend again. Add a few floating berries as a garnish.
