Rosé Raspberry Lavender Spritzer Cocktail

Have you tried this spritzer cocktail? It’s a winner if we do say so ourselves. It’s not only an innovative twist on classic vodka but also a gorgeous blush color that’s perfect for spring brunch.

Why You’ll Love This Spritzer Cocktail

For brunch, the ideal drink is something light and fresh, like an Italian Sangria, a French 75, an Aperol Paloma, or this rose raspberry lavender spritzer cocktail.

This spritzer cocktail is entertaining perfection because it’s mostly made ahead. You make the raspberry lavender syrup in advance and shake the drinks up during brunch. To make it even easier, we suggest setting up a cocktail station so your guests can DIY! 

Spritzer Cocktail Recipe

Spritzer Cocktail Recipe Ingredients

Here are the ingredients you need to make this cocktail:

  • Granulated Sugar: Combined with raspberries and lavender, the lovely bright red simple syrup sweetens the cocktail. FYI, you can use honey or agave syrup instead of sugar. 
  • Fresh Raspberries: Use in-season raspberries or another berry for the simple syrup. You can use frozen raspberries, but they will add extra water to the syrup, FYI. 
  • Culinary Lavender: We adore lavender, but if it’s not for you, you can use basil, tarragon, or vanilla bean. 
  • Hangar 1 Rosé Vodka: This cocktail is made with the Hangar 1 Rosé vodka, which brings more floral notes. 
  • Lime: A squeeze of lime brings the cocktail into balance so it’s not too sweet.

How To Make This Recipe

Here’s how to make this spritzer cocktail:

  • Make Lavender Raspberry Simple Syrup: Simmer the sugar, water, raspberries, and lavender to make a subtle simple syrup. 
  • Make A Spritzer Cocktail: Combine the vodka, simple syrup, and lime juice with ice in a cocktail shaker and shake. Strain into a couple and serve. 

What To Serve With This

This spritzer cocktail is one part of a Mother’s Day brunch menu that is a must-make during the spring. Made with Almond French Toast, Charred Asparagus, Baked Eggs, and a delicious Pavlova, it’s a total showstopper of a meal.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 1/2 cups (about 16 ounces or 1 pint) fresh raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon dried culinary lavender buds
  • 1 1/2 ounces Hangar 1 Rosé Vodka
  • 1 ounce raspberry lavender syrup
  • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • Ice cubes
  • Lime slices thinly sliced, for garnish
  • Fresh lavender buds for garnish

Instructions
 

  • Make The Lavender Simple Syrup: Place the sugar and water in a medium saucepan and stir to dissolve the sugar. Bring to a boil over high heat then reduce to a simmer. Add the raspberries and, using the back of a potato masher or a large fork, mash the berries until all broken up. Let the mixture simmer for 5 minutes then remove from heat. 
    Add the lavender and set the mixture aside to steep until it tastes of raspberries and lavender, about 20 minutes. Strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer, pushing on the berry mixture to extract most of the juice. Discard the solids and set the syrup aside until ready to use.
    Makes about 1 cup of syrup (enough syrup for 8 cocktails).
    TIP: Syrup can be made up to 2 weeks in advance – store refrigerated in an airtight container until ready to use.
  • Make One Cocktail: For one drink, place a few ice cubes and water in a coupe glass to chill and set aside until ready to use.
    Combine 1 1/2 ounces of the Hangar 1 Rosé Vodka with 1 ounce of the raspberry lavender syrup, and 1/2 ounce of freshly-squeezed lime juice in a cocktail shaker. Add enough ice to fill the shaker 3/4 of the way then close and shake until the shaker is thoroughly chilled, about 15 seconds.
    Discard the ice water from the coupe glass then strain the cocktail into the chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a slice of lime and a bud of lavender and serve immediately.
