A delightfully simple raspberry lemon drop comes together with just a few ingredients for a perfect refreshing cocktail.
It’s spring guys. I get it. I love spring don’t get me wrong, but can I just say I’m pining for summer already? This week I picked up the boys from school and my car said it was 46 degrees outside. Anyone else with me on this? So I decided this week I am ready for summer. I need 70-90 degree weather and sunshine on my shoulders. And that I needed a cocktail.
So in honor of summer almost being here I made this drink. Raspberries get mashed up with fresh lemon juice and a splash of honey. A few sprigs of fresh herbs like thyme, mint or basil while not necessary are my favorite way to fancy up any drink when I am splurging.
It’s time to kick back and soak up those few moments of warmth that we can. Or hide under a blanket and sip this in front of the fireplace trying to reminder ourselves that summer really will be here soon.
