Here is a Raspberry Vodka Champagne Cocktail that’s fruity, tart and bubbly with just the right amount of sweetness. Give any occasion a celebratory vibe — or make it for the loved one’s in your life on Galentine’s Day or Valentine’s Day!
4–5 whole raspberries, plus extra for garnish
2 oz vodka
1/2 oz grenadine
1/2 oz simple syrup, optional (add in if you like sweet cocktails!)
Muddle raspberries: Add whole raspberries to a cocktail shaker and muddle together until the raspberries have released their juices. Add in the vodka, grenadine and simple syrup and shake together.
Top with bubbly: Pour contents into a cocktail glass through a fine mesh strainer. Fill the glass ⅔ with ice and top the remaining glass with champagne.
Enjoy!: Garnish with a cocktail pick filled with raspberries.
Sweetness: If you like your cocktails on the sweeter side (my friends do!) I do a combo of simple syrup and grenadine. If you don’t like as much sweetness leave out the simple syrup.
