There’s no better way to welcome the long, warm days of Summer than with a cocktail that combines the sweetness of honey with the tart bite of fresh raspberries and lemon. Crisp and refreshing, the raspberry lemon drop is perfect for porch sipping.
- 4 oz. of fresh lemon juice (approximately 3 lemons)
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1/2 cup warm water
- 2 oz. vodka
- 10 raspberries
- Thyme or mint leaves
Combine honey and warm water in a cocktail shaker and stir until the honey is fully dissolved.
Add raspberries and gently muddle the raspberries in the honey water.
Add lemon juice, vodka, and a few ice cubes to the cocktail shaker.
Give the shaker a few good shakes and pour through the strainer top into a cup of ice.
Add a few mint or thyme leaves to the glass. Top with a slice of lemon and extra raspberries.
Pull up a rocking chair and enjoy the flavors of Summer.
