Beverage Triumph

The delicious recipe I made up last night:

Approx. 1.75 cups black raspberry puree (picked from your own patch)
Juice of 10 Mexican limes
Approx. 2 cups simple syrup
Approx 1.75 liter club soda

Add half the puree and half the lime juice and half the syrup to one pitcher. Add the remainder to another pitcher. Fill each pitcher w/club soda. Chill. Serve over crushed ice. Or not.

In my limited experience this tastes even better the next day.

EDIT: a handful of mint leaves (crushed) per pitcher. And you should probably strain when serving.

Something New

Today I learned that it is possible to get through airport security without a boarding pass, provided you are given a visitor's pass, which, if the self-check kiosk are working, you'll never get because it requires talking to a person.
