i know you're all on the look out for fresh cocktails to greet guests with this summer, and i'm here to help. this lemon raspberry mix is the perfect amount and of sweet and super refreshing. i'd love to mix up a big batch for our next backyard get together!
- 1 1/2 oz. skinnygirl meyer lemon vodka
- 3/4 oz. cointreau
- 1 1/2 oz. of a 50/50 mix of lemon juice and agave nectar (or lemon sour mix)
- 4 fresh raspberries
- lemon wheel and 1 raspberry for garnish
- sparkling water (optional)
muddle your raspberries at the bottom of a cocktail shaker, top with the vodka, liqueur and sour mix, shake and pour over ice.
i topped ours off with about 4-5 oz. of sparkling water to give the cocktail a few bubbles and cut down the sweetness. either way it was delicious though! and if you're serving in a bigger batch, just set out with a few bottles of perrier for guests to add as they please.
wrap a raspberry with your lemon wheel, secure with a toothpick and serve.
