New Years Eve Cocktail: Raspberry Sparkler

Every year around this time, people start sprinting to the internet and recipe books for new vodka drinks and cocktails to whip out for all their friends. Sometimes the goal is to stay classy; other times, it’s to just get trashy. I know I’ve had my fair share of each.

As I find myself getting older, wiser, classier (sometimes), I decided to feature a drink that will look equally good in a champagne flute or a plastic cup. Because of tradition, this will be a nice lighter cocktail featuring champagne to give the cocktail a sweet carbonation. If  your goal is to get trashy tonight, feel free to make a big batch using the cheapest champagne you can find. Maybe spend a little more for the classier single cocktails.

Recipe: Raspberry Sparkler
