Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 Cup sugar
  • 1/4 Cup water
  • 1/4 Cup Aperol
  • 6 Ounces raspberries
  • 8 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • Seltzer

Directions

Add the chopped mint leaves, sugar, and water to a small saucepan, and bring to the boil. Stir occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved. Let simmer for 3 minutes, and then remove from the heat. Pour the syrup through a sieve to remove the mint leaves, pressing on the leaves as you do so, and let cool in a bowl or measuring cup.

Once cool, add the raspberries and Aperol to the mint simple syrup, and muddle together. Divide the mixture between 4 tall glasses. Add 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream to each glass, and then top off with seltzer.

Raspberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
