Raspberry Lemonade Cocktail #tellmetuesdayblog

This cocktail is perfect for sunny Sunday afternoons. So I can spend more time catching up with my friends and less time mixing drinks in the kitchen I prefer to make the raspberry syrup a day or so in advance. This cocktail also works really well made in large quantities and served in a jug.

You will need:
  • 30 ml quality vodka (I prefer Ciroc)
  • 30 ml prosecco
  • Soda water
  • Basil sprig (or mint) and ice to garnish
Raspberry Syrup
  • 1 cup raspberries (plus extra to garnish)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Combine sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat until sugar is completely dissolved. Allow to cool.

Puree the raspberries in a blender and push through fine sieve to separate seeds. Combine with sugar syrup and lemon.

To serve, add 60 ml raspberry syrup to a tumbler. Add vodka and prosecco. Fill the glass with ice and top with soda water. Add a basil sprig and a few extra berries to garnish.
