On the Rocks: Raspberry Gin Crush.

In an attempt to stick with this week’s raspberry theme, this Wednesday’s cocktail is the Raspberry Gin Crush. The recipe below is actually a vegan version, but you can easily substitute Chambord for the fresh raspberries and agave nectar. I think I might have to try both versions, you know, just for the sake of comparing and contrasting. Ahem.

Ingredients:
- 8 fresh raspberries
- juice from 1/2 lime
- 1/2 teaspoon agave nectar
- 1 1/2 ounces gin
- about 2 ounces tonic
- ice

Muddle the raspberries, lime juice, and agave nectar together. Pour over ice. Add gin and tonic and stir. Serves 1.

    Wikipedia tells me that Chambord isn’t vegan because it contains honey. You learn something new every day!

    yup. that’s why. a little strange because it’s not like it harms the bees when they harvest it. but whatever gets you through the night!
