Raspberry Refresher

Raspberry Refresher ~   The balance of this drink is good, the taste is affirmative in being well balanced between the sweet tartness of the raspberries and the sometimes overshadowing flavor of the gin.

If you’re looking for stiff drinks and classics cocktails, this Summer Cocktail Series will not be your happy hunting ground. Summer time is high fruit season and a lot of what I drink or eat at this time centers around that. Most of mixed drinks you’ll see in this series will have a majority share in fruit with some cocktailing around it.

Let me know in the comment section if you have a fruit you want to see featured in this series.

    Working with raspberries now to make a vinagerette… too early for a cocktail with berries? ;)
