Spiked Raspberry Lemonade Cocktail
Summertime cocktail season has finally arrived!!! Obviously, most cocktails can be enjoyed year-round, but I think you’ll agree there’s just something extra delicious about a refreshing cocktail during the summer months.
Most of the cocktail creations that come from my bar (no really it’s my kitchen) are simple pour or blend concoctions. Exact measurements are provided but not entirely necessary if you know what I mean.
What I love about this Spiked Raspberry Lemonade Cocktail is the combination of flavors. You have the almondy goodness of Amaretto, the warm flavors of whiskey, and the pop of fruity sour from the raspberry lemonade. Just a touch of Sprite adds a bit of fizz and there you have it, a great adult beverage to enjoy out on the deck on hot summer evenings.
I told you this cocktail was easy! Adding to the ease of this recipe, I used store-bought lemonade, if you prefer freshly squeezed made in your kitchen lemonade, it will be equally as wonderful. I like to enjoy this cocktail over ice and of course, the garnish isn’t completely necessary but it sure looks impressive if you plan on serving this to guests. By the way, you can easily increase the amounts of this drink to make a pitcher, trust me it’ll disappear quickly!
You may be wondering what kind of alcohol can be mixed with lemonade? Let me assure you there’s a large variety to choose from, such as:
How do you make fresh homemade lemonade?
- 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (5 to 6 lemons)
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup superfine sugar, to taste
- 1 cup crushed ice
- 4 cups water
Simply blend all ingredients in an electric blender, and enjoy!
