It's raspberry season and we had to make up a fun cocktail to celebrate!
Raspberry Lavender Lemonade Spritzer
1 cup raspberries
1 Tbsp water
1/2 cup Lavender Lemonade
3 cups seltzer water
3 shots Raspberry Vodka (Adult version)
1 shot Lavender Simple Syrup
Lavender Cocktail Pick (garnish)
In a small saucepan add raspberries and 1 Tbsp water. On medium heat bring raspberries to a simmer. Continue a low simmer until raspberries break apart about 4 minutes. Remove from heat and strain off seeds. You can do this by using a back of a spoon to squeeze the raspberry mush to release the juice. Set aside.
In a large glass measuring container add lavender lemonade, stir in seltzer water and cooled raspberry juice. Add vodka and serve in a glass with ice. Garnish with raspberries, lemon and lavender cocktail picks. Cheers!
