This cocktail screams summer. The perfect mix of tart and sweet, and is incredibly refreshing. But watch out, it’s quite potent.


4 ounces lemon vodka, like Absolute Citron
1 ounce crème de framboise
8 ounces juice from freshly squeezed grapefruit
8 ounces Prosecco (or any dry sparkling wine)
10 fresh raspberries
4 slices grapefruit for garnish


  1. Fill a pitcher (at least 32 ounces) with ice cubes. In a liquid measuring cup, crush raspberries, and mix with vodka and crème de framboise. In a separate bowl, mix grapefruit juice and sparkling wine. Add both mixtures to pitcher and stir. Garnish 4 champagne flutes with grapefruit slices and serve.
