A Hard Cider Cocktail For All Seasons!

When I was thinking of how to make a summer cocktail with raspberries and not make it too sweet – I have to admit I was getting stumped. But this This Raspberry Cider Whiskey is so delicious and refreshing it won the contest.

A whiskey cocktail for the warmer months, perfect for parties and BBQ’s! What I was looking for was a  more refreshing summer cocktail…maybe a little sweet…but definitely something with some punch to it.

We have raspberry bushes that grow wild all along the edge of our backyard. It’s pretty fun to go out with a few bowls and come back with them overflowing with berries.

Just sitting down and eating them is good for me, smashed into a bowl of vanilla ice cream – awesome – but fresh fruit mixed into a cocktail? There’s nothing better.

I guess whiskey seems to be a lot of my first thoughts…but I had just opened a bottle of Crown Royal Apple and it’s been on my brain.

A shot or two of this stuff shaken with ice is so good on it’s own I had to try it in a cocktail.

Sometimes you just get things right. The first mix of this drink was a winner. It almost tastes like a candy apple…with raspberry…and whiskey. But you get the idea.

Sweet but not too sweet, crisp and seriously refreshing.
