Cocktail Hour: Razzmopolitan

Hello there. Happy Friday!

Let me introduce you to the Razzmopolitan, which may very well be my favorite homemade cocktail yet. I upped the ante in the raspberry department by using a wonderful raspberry simple syrup, from the nice folks at Royal Rose Simple Syrups. Their products are amazing. They have some unusual flavors too, like Fenugreek, Anise -- and, of course, Rose. Check out their website where you can purchase their products online.


Fill a cocktail shaker half way with ice. Add:
1 ounce raspberry vodka
1 ounce citrus vodka
1/2 ounce Chambord (raspberry liqueur)
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon simple syrup
2 tablespoons cranberry juice

Shake and strain into a martini glass. Cheers!

Here's what I used: Absolut Raspberri Vodka, homemade Meyer lemon-infused vodka, Royal Rose Raspberry Simple Syrup


  1. That is such a pretty cocktail! Just the right colors for summer.

  2. prettiness in a fancy glass.
    bet it tasted mighty fine too.

  3. Loving your cocktails this summer!!! Buying that simple syrup too!

  4. Seriously, I want to see your bar, just for the sheer quantity of mixers you must own!

    I think we have a lot of bottles (oh...yes...we do!) but I'm giving you the pro mixologist gold medal!


    1. LOL!! I'll take the gold medal, thanks! Our bar is fairly well stocked, indeed: whiskey, rum (light and amber), gin, three different vodkas, tequila, brandy, Cointreau, Chambord, Midori, Kahlua, Disaronno, Limoncello ... I think that's it. Then there are the wines! And no, we don't have a drinking problem. Many of these liquors have been in our bar for quite some time. It's fun to mix up a cocktail now and then. But one drink does it for me. I'm a lightweight.
