Raspberry Lime Rickey Cake
Ever heard of a lime rickey? NO?! Then you've missed one of summer's most refreshing drinks. At its simplest, it's a mixture of carbonated water (seltzer), lime juice, and simple syrup (sugar). In elevated form, it includes alcohol; the mojito is its kissing cousin. And if you're talking strictly ice cream fountain fare, the lime rickey is often enhanced with other flavored syrups — most often raspberry, if you live in New England. This lime cake, with its raspberry topping, is a tribute to the drink made famous by New England's Friendly's and Brigham's ice cream chains.
