Cocktails with Raspberry-infused Syrups
It’s easy to make a craft cocktail when you have a fruit-based drink syrup to add. You can make you own shrub syrup or simple syrup or purchase a ready-made syrup.
Shrub syrups are made with a bit of vinegar (sometimes called drinking vinegars) and give the drink that tangy bite that some people (like me) love. Simple syrups are a bit sweeter (no vinegar), but you can determine how sweet you want the drink by how much syrup you flavor it with.
If you have a bitter palate, add a dash of bitters to the cocktail recipes.
Spritzers with no Alcohol:
A spritzer is basically referring to a base of bubbly water, which is then flavored with a fruit, a fruit syrup, or a spice syrup. The carbonated liquid doesn’t have to be water, it can be ginger ale, tonic water, sparkling wine, etc. It does need to have bubbles however.
The ratios I prefer in spritzers are:
- 1 1/2 ounce Fruit-based drink syrup
- 8 oz. sparkling water (optional: ginger ale or tonic water)
- squeeze of lime
Simply combine the syrup and sparkling water together in a glass filled with ice cubes and stir. Finish with a squeeze of lime.
