Raspberry Gin Cocktail

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.
