A deliciously fresh raspberry cocktail 

I love fresh raspberries, and they are the secret to this cocktail’s goodness. I muddled mine with a spoon, no fancy equipment here! The spoon worked just fine. To add a little extra sweetness, I used my new favorite add-in, agave nectar. It incorporates with drinks so easily and tastes really fresh. (perfect for margaritas!).

How to muddle fruit

  • Place your fruit into a sturdy glass like a pint glass or shaker tin. Set the glass on a hard, stable surface.
  • Insert your spoon into the glass at a slight angle and press down hard (but not so hard as to break the glass). Twist the spoon to extract all that juicy, zesty goodness. When you have gotten all that you can out of the fruit, stop muddling and continue to build and prepare your cocktail.

The perfect summer cocktail

With it’s summery colors and fruity flavors it’s the perfect tipple to toast the summer. I literally cannot wait until I can serve these on our new deck at an actual outdoor BBQ. When coming out of winter, I don’t even remember what 70 degree weather feels like!! This little cocktail brought me back a little. There’s light at the end of the winter tunnel!

Top Tips

  • If you don;t have a muddler use a wooden spoon.
  • You can swap agave for honey if you like.
  • Garnish with fresh raspberries.
  • Sugaring the rim of each glass is a quick and easy way to elevate the look of the cocktail.
  • To make this non alcoholic leave out the vodka, still tastes great!
