I mentioned it a few months ago, but I think the times we’re in right now have been difficult for a lot of people. Two of my most well-read recipes the past few months continue to be cocktails –The Frenchy and my Classic Cosmo. And I’m not going to lie, I’ve been enjoying more than my share of wine and cocktails myself. Being home all of the time, homeschooling my children, and not having a solid dose of alone time or time out with friends…. it’s just HARD. 


And so, when Michelle from Our Crafty Cocktails wanted to celebrate summer with Summer Cocktails, I jumped. I was excited both to share a new recipe and to bookmark some tried and true cocktail recipes from my blogging friends.

I’m excited to share a Raspberry Mojito recipe today. I am a sucker for raspberry flavors. In this case I use Chambord liquor to get that flavor. The cocktail is sweet and tart but oh so refreshing. Had my kids not been up and running around when I was recipe testing, I probably would have made myself a second.

Recipe Notes:

  • Variations: Instead of the traditional mint, use basil.
  • Chambord: This is the only raspberry liquor I’ve ever used and can’t recommend it enough. If you’re hesitant to buy a bottle just for this recipe, I’ve got you covered. I like to sip it straight up or on the rocks and make a quick Chambord sour using store-bought sour mixes. In addition, Chambord is used this Sparkling Chambord Sangria and my Raspberry Chambord Sorbet.
