Rum and Raspberry Cocktail

December 31, 2019Sew White

This delicious Rum and Raspberry Cocktail is always a winner at a party. The spiced rum and raspberry flavours work so incredibly well together.

Good drinks are perfect all year round. I have loved coming up with new cocktails and easy to make drinks in time for the festive season and beyond. This one is probably my favourite. Raspberries and rum work incredibly well together.

I added a little garnish of a rosemary sprig with raspberries threaded on to give it a more fancy look. Rosemary is great for decorating Christmas food and drink as it sort of looks likes Christmas tree. Plus it smells divine. The rest of the year it is a really nice flourish.

Red and fizzy Christmas Rum and Raspberry Cocktail topped with rosemary and fresh raspberries.

This drink goes perfectly with my Christmas graze table.

Ready to drink Rum and Raspberry Cocktail

For this drink I used Raspberry Liqueur. I was gifted a bottle of the White Heron British Framboise Raspberry Liqueur and I haven’t stopped using it. It’s lovely in Prosecco or Champagne but also as a way to make lemonade a little more interesting after work. If you have just with lemonade add a little fresh lemon juice. It tastes wonderful.

The essence of our raspberries, grown in the fields of Herefordshire, is perfectly captured in this liqueur. The vibrant colour is matched by irresistible summer flavours, light and zesty yet crammed with fruity notes. A wonderful addition to fizz and champagne and an exciting new dimension to cocktails.

You only need a little of this at a time as the flavour is delicious and is so fruity. I hadn’t used raspberry liqueur before trying this but is now a drink I would always have in my drinks cupboard.
