Scale

Ingredients

Raspberry Simple Syrup

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract

For the Cocktails

  • 2 cups champagne
  • 2 ounces of raspberry liquor or raspberry vodka
  • 2 ounces of raspberry simple syrup*
  • Raspberries to garnish
  • sugar to garnish

Instructions

For the simple syrup**

  1. Stir sugar, water and vanilla together in a small sauce pan over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Add raspberries and reduce heat to medium low. Bring to a slow simmer, stirring regularly. Let simmer for 2 minutes. Pour into a jar by holding a strainer over the jar and pressing the remaining raspberries against the strainer with a spoon. Cover and refrigerate.

For the cocktails

  1. Dip rim of 2 champagne glasses in a small bowl or dish of water, then dip in sugar. Add a shot of raspberry liquor, 1 shot of raspberry simple syrup and a cup of champagne to each glass. Stir and enjoy.

Notes

** If you want to take a shortcut on the raspberry simple syrup, skip it and add a shot of raspberry cocktail juice instead and about a 1/8 tsp of vanilla. So yummy and no fuss.
