Pressing the raspberries through a fine-mesh sieve will get every drop of juice into this refreshing limeade while leaving those pesky seeds behind. If you want to make it ahead, don’t add the seltzer until the last minute.
You’ll feel like you’re on a tropical getaway with this refreshing cocktail. To keep it cool, freeze fresh berries for 30 minutes before blending. For a nonalcoholic version, omit the rum and add 1/2 cup additional strawberries.
New York City will never taste so sweet again ... literally. Say goodbye to super-sized sodas and other sugary drinks you love. As of Thursday, New York City health officials are expected to put a 16-ounce limit on any sugary drinks being sold at restaurants, theaters and delis.
Mayor Bloomberg originally proposed the regulation, which a panel of health experts approved after months of review. The ban includes non-diet sodas, sweetened teas and other beverages. However, the ban does not reach supermarkets or convenience stores.
Don't panic. If you love sugar as much as we do, we have good news: Health officials can't regulate what you drink in the comfort of your own home, and we have plenty of homemade sugary drink options for you!
