Recipe for a refreshing cocktail


Raspberry Basil Limoncello Cocktail


  • 1 pint fresh raspberries, plus more for snacking and garnish (or try with another berry, we won’t tell)
  • 12 fresh basil leaves, roughly torn, plus more for garnish (it’d be a weird snack, we’d judge)
  • 1 lemon, cut into 6 wedges, plus one more for garnish
  • 1/4 cup simple syrup, chilled (equal parts sugar and water, heated until sugar dissolves)
  • 2 oz. limoncello
  • 4 oz citrus vodka (or regular vodka)
  • 2 bottles prosecco
  • Crushed ice

Combine raspberries, basil, lemon wedges, and simple syrup in a jar and let marinate for up to 2 days in the ice box.

Strain raspberry mixture.

Shake together limoncello, vodka, and 2-4 oz. of raspberry liquid (to taste) with crushed ice.  Pour and float prosecco on top.

Garnish as you see fit.

Erin once dreamed of being a champion barrel racer and FBI agent, but a series of unfortunate events, poor eyesight, and an astounding lack of coordination precluded that path. Luckily for her, she loves real estate even more, and, apart from opening doors, navigating stairs, climbing into attics and on roofs, and catching escaping cats, it requires hardly any physical coordination.
