The Wild Groves Rosé Balsamic Vinegar is here, and naturally, we decided to make a cocktail. This Raspberry Rosé Spritzer is refreshing, easy to make, and is a great use for the Rosé Balsamic Vinegar. We started with a homemade raspberry shrub, which adds a sweet-tart flavor to your choice of Prosecco or Sparkling Rosé wine! Add a squeeze of lime for extra acidity if you need it, garnish with fresh mint and rosemary sprigs, and you’re good to go 👏
Raspberry Shrub Recipe:
- 2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup Wild Groves Rosé Vinegar
Combine the raspberries and the sugar in a medium bowl. Mash well with a fork, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. If using frozen raspberries, thaw in the microwave for 1-2 minutes depending on the strength of your microwave and then mix with sugar in a medium bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
Add the vinegar and stir well. Strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve into a clean bowl, pressing on the solids. Discard the solids.
- Store the shrub in a glass jar in the refrigerator for immediate or later use.
Raspberry Rosé Cocktail:
- 1/4 (4 oz) Raspberry Shrub
- 8 oz Prosecco or Sparkling Rosé
- Squeeze of fresh lime juice, optional
- Ice for serving
- Fresh mint and rosemary sprigs to garnish
- Edible flowers to garnish, optional
Cocktail Assembly Instructions:
Pour 1/4 cup of raspberry shrub in the bottom of a tall glass. Add ice and top with your favorite Prosecco or sparkling Rosé wine and a squeeze of fresh lime juice (optional). If you prefer less wine, you can use 4 oz of the shrub, 4 oz of Prosecco or a sparkling wine, and 4 oz of club soda or a sparkling drink such as Spindrift (We recommend the Raspberry Lime flavor). Stir to combine.
*For a non-alcoholic version, simply combine a splash of the shrub (approximately 1/8 of a cup) to club soda and add ice.
