Kick your summer up a notch with this easy peasy, super refreshing cocktail. It’s the fresh muddled raspberries that do it for me. And raspberries are fruit, so this is healthy…right? It’s been miserably hot the past couple weeks, so I haven’t been using the oven and stove as much, which is why this spritzer became a thing. The cocktail certainly helped cool us down!
