So when skimming an old edition of Southern Living magazine at the doctors office a couple of weeks ago I came across a recipe for a cocktail that was made using raspberry lemonade and beer. It really intrigued me....a recipe that involved frozen juice concentrate, light beer, vodka & berries? Sounds strange doesn't it?
But...I was pleasantly surprised with how light & refreshing this drink is! (Even my husband, who never likes fruity drinks, thought it was good)
It was absolutely delicious and I think it has quickly became my go to drink for lounging pool side this summer! (It was also beautiful to look at so I will for sure be using this to serve whenever we entertain over the summer.)
Raspberry Beer Cocktail
from Southern Living
- 3/4 cup fresh or frozen raspberries
- 3 1/2 12 oz bottles of beer (light works best)
- 1 container (12 oz) frozen raspberry lemonade concentrate, thawed
- 1/2 cup Vodka
1) Using the back of a spoon, mash raspberries in a bowl. Transfer raspberries to a pitcher.
2) Add remaining 3 ingredients to pitcher and stir together.
3) Serve over ice & enjoy!
(I added a few whole raspberries to garnish my drink, lime or lemon slices would also be great as garnish!)
