About this Cocktail

Recipe courtesy Bryan Dayton, co-owner and beverage director of OAK at fourteenth, Boulder, Colorado

Ingredients:
  • 2 fresh raspberries, plus 1 additional berry for garnish
  • 1 ounce Lillet Blanc
  • Dry sparkling wine, such as Prosecco
  • ½ ounce honey simple syrup (1 part honey to 1 part water)
  • ¼ ounce lemon juice
Preparation:

Originally, this drink was made with gin, but Dayton found that the wine-based spirit Lillet Blanc provided similar botanical notes, so he dropped the gin from the recipe.

Muddle the raspberries in the bottom of a mixing glass. Add the Lillet, simple syrup, lemon juice and ice. Shake well, then double strain into a Champagne flute. Top with sparkling wine. Float one fresh raspberry on top as garnish.
