June 3, 2019 — Brizo; Raspberry Gin Seltzer

 

Summer is less than a month away and we want to make sure you’re fully prepared to soak up some sun, while staying as hydrated as possible. It’s the responsible thing to do. These warm days ahead will be a lot more enjoyable with an adult beverage in your back pocket, and we’re here to deliver just that. Thanks to Chrissie Beth, from Off the Eaten Path, we’re sharing a staple cocktail recipe you will find yourself coming back to. Chrissie calls it “a fruity spin on the classic gin rickey cocktail”. This Raspberry Gin Seltzer is a fizzy, light and refreshing cocktail perfect for spring and summer sipping! Most importantly, it’s very easy to make and you most likely already have the ingredients required.

 

This recipe calls for: 1 cup raspberries (about 6 to 8 ounces) 1 16 ounce can Brizo Ginger Lime Craft Spiked Seltzer 3 ounces gin 2-3 teaspoons honey juice of 2-3 limes mint leaves to taste INSTRUCTIONS Place a handful (about 10-12) of raspberries in the bottom of each cocktail glass. Add a teaspoon of honey, a few mint leaves, and a squeeze of lime juice to each glass. (Add more honey if you like sweeter cocktails…up to one tablespoon per cocktail.) Muddle raspberries until coarsely pureed. Add 1 1/2 ounce gin to each cocktail glass. Squeeze the juice of one lime into each glass. Add crushed or cubed ice to the glass. Top each cocktail with 8 ounces of Brizo Ginger Lime Craft Spiked Seltzer and stir. Top with mint leaves and lime for garnish. Enjoy! NOTES Use 1 teaspoon or more (to taste) white sugar in lieu of honey. Use 1/2 to 3/4 ounces of simple syrup in lieu of honey if you prefer sweeter cocktails.
