Do you all feel that? Spring is finally in the air! :) And with spring comes weekend brunches and lazy afternoons on the deck taking in the sunshine and warmer weather. For me, spring also means serving a refreshing, sparkling cocktail that reflects the mood of the season. When you combine fresh raspberries and lime with bubbly club soda and a little gin, you just can't go wrong. That is unless the glassware you are serving this perfectly spring cocktail in is far from sparkling.  Nothing dampens a bright & cheery cocktail quicker than dingy glassware- Am I right, folks?

That is why I was so glad to have discovered Finish® Quantum Max™ tablets at my local Target...

Raspberry Limeade Gin Fizz

by Frugal Foodie Mama
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: None
Ingredients (2 cocktails)
  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1/2 half of fresh lime, cut in two
  • 3 oz of your favorite gin
  • Simple syrup, to your preferred sweetness (start with 2 tbsp and add more if needed)
  • Crushed ice
  • Club soda
  • Lime slices or wheels for garnishing
Instructions
Add the raspberries to a cocktail shaker. Squeeze the juice from the two lime pieces into the shaker and then throw in the actual lime pieces. Using a pestle, muddle the the raspberries and lime together. Pour in the gin and simple syrup. Place the lid on the shaker and give it a quick shake.

Filled two sparkling glasses with crushed ice. Strain the mixture in the cocktail shaker evenly into the two glasses. I spooned out a little of the crushed raspberries into each glass for added color and flavor.
Top each glass off with club soda and give a little stir with a cocktail straw.
Garnish with a lime wedge or wheel.
Cheers!
