Rosalinda {a raspberry shrub cocktail}

After posting the raspberry shrub recipe, I felt like I needed to do more with the shrub than just add gin for a cocktail. I mean it was an easy one to make, but it wasn’t very creative. So, after much time thinking about it and trying various ideas, I finally came up with this raspberry shrub cocktail.

Part of my problem with this raspberry shrub cocktail was I couldn’t decide which base spirit to use. I didn’t want to use gin again so I was stuck debating between rum and tequila. Finally, I landed on tequila since I had a brand new bottle of Casa Noble Crystal (aka blanco or silver) on the counter.

To go along with the tequila and raspberry shrub, I used fresh mint from the garden and lime juice. To bring in a little bit of sweetness, I added a touch of Lillet Rose. If you don’t have this on hand (or can’t find any), agave nectar, simple syrup or honey syrup would also work. Start with 1/4 ounce and adjust from there as needed. The drink will be a little different from the version I have here, but that’s okay. It will still be good.
