My new favorite cocktail is this light and refreshing Raspberry Gin Cocktail. We’re making our own simple syrup (and I promise, it’s super simple to prepare), made with no refined sugars for a delicious and guilt-free cocktail. Plus, it’s festive for Valentine’s Day!
We’ve also spruced up the ice cubes by adding raspberries into them! So cute, so festive.
If you’re staying in for Valentine’s Day or are looking for the perfect drink to make before heading out to dinner, this light and flavorful cocktail is for you!
We’re heading out to for a little dinner date tonight, and starting off with one or two of these beauties.
