With the warm weather finally among us, I think it’s time to break out the summery drinks. This cocktail is beyond easy and just the right amount of boozy. I won’t lie to you, they’re very easy drinking so you might find yourself a little giggly after one or two.
The ingredients feature fresh raspberries (though you could also use frozen raspberries if that is what you have available), freshly squeezed lime juice, club soda and a clear spirit of your choice (I prefer gin in this particular beverage but vodka or white rum are also great choices!).
This cocktail is an easy way to impress your friends with minimal true effort.
