The Raspberry Lemonade Cocktail
It is no secret that Perfect Setting Catering is a big fan of a fabulous cocktail, and today we are sharing one that is super easy to mix.
The best part about this Raspberry Lemonade Cocktail is that it only has three main ingredients. Not only is this easy to make, but you can make it in a big batch, and serve it in a pitcher at your next summer bash.
Raspberry Lemonade (whichever brand you prefer!)
Malibu Coconut Rum
Watermelon Vodka (Smirnoff makes this)
All you need to do is mix 2 parts of the raspberry lemonade with 1 part Malibu Coconut rum and 1 part Watermelon-flavored vodka. That’s it!!
Once mixed, you’ll need to chill the Raspberry Lemonade Cocktail. Chilling the drink before adding ice helps avoid diluting the flavor as a warm drink would melt down the ice and create a subpar cocktail. Serve over ice.
Serving a cocktail in a pitcher to a group of guests does not mean you should skip the garnish. Here are some of our ideas for how to spruce up this bright, summery drink.
You can add thin slices of lemon inside of the drink or even grate some lemon zest. Also, try coating the rim of the glass with cinnamon and sugar. You can also try using fresh, frozen raspberries which also double as additional ‘ice cubes’.
If you are really feeling ambitious, purchase fresh cardamom pods from your local Whole Foods and crush the seeds into a fine powder. Cardamom has a sweet and floral fragrance and a little bit can go a long way! Add just a pinch to your cocktail as a fragrant garnish.
Another trending flavor additive is Elderberry syrup. Try adding a splash of this concentrate as desired. The mixture of flavor and aroma will create a fantastic summer drink.
