Elizabeth’s Raspberry Holiday Cocktail


Last month’s post on Tina’s “Enchanted Home” was so much fun, I decided to ask another one of my talented blogger friends to share with us.

I’m so delighted Elizabeth of Pretty Pink Tulips was gracious enough to send over these festive photos of her house, all decked out for the Holidays!

Known for her stylish entertaining and gift giving tips, I couldn’t resist including one of Elizabeth’s signature holiday cocktail recipes here today.

This year, mix up your mulled wine, spiked apple cider and Moscow mule Christmas offerings with this festive mixed drink.


Raspberry Holiday Cocktail Recipe –  serves 6

First, make a simple syrup, that you can keep in the fridge and use all month long.
1/2 cup sugar combined with 1/2 cup hot water. Mix until dissolved, let cool.
To make the raspberry puree, blend 1 oz simple syrup with 2 pints fresh or frozen raspberries until smooth.
Place a generous spoonful of puree in each champagne flute.
Top with your favorite champagne or ginger beer.
For a non-alcoholic version of this raspberry holiday cocktail (a mocktail) we recommend trying ginger ale in place of the Champagne.
Garnish with a couple of fresh raspberries and a sprig of rosemary for holiday flair.
*Cranberry cocktail fans, you can also sub in fresh sugared cranberry puree here instead of raspberries and garnish it with fresh cranberries.
Optional to add ice cubes.


Holiday parties may look different this year, but this drink is a hit regardless.

I’ve had the pleasure of visiting Elizabeth’s home in nearby Westchester County, New York in person and I can tell you that it is as charming and warm as the lady that lives there!

These fabulous photos were taken last December (hence the snow) so be sure to stop by Pretty Pink Tulips to see what type of magic Elizabeth has whipped up for her family’s home this year…Thanks so much for sharing your delicious raspberry holiday cocktail with us PPT!
