This cocktail is bubbly, fresh and delicious! It’s one of my favorite mixed drinks. But I have to admit, the reason it’s one of my favs is because it reminds me of the first time I ever had a gin fizz at the adorable Penn Wells hotel bar. My sister and I met up in the cutest little town of Wellboro exactly four years ago today (thank you Timehop!). We managed to escape responsibilities for a whole weekend and it was awesome! We shopped, saw a movie at the theater, played rummy over coffee at the local diner, and chatted about life in the hotel hot tub. The best part though? If you can believe anything is better than all those things… we actually ICE SKATED ON A REAL LAKE. Surrounded by mile-high evergreen greens, while it gently snowed. It was magical. And there was hot chocolate. Best sister weekend ever. Swipe to see a couple photos of our ice skating experience. 🙂
So this raspberry gin fizz. Whether you’re hosting a party, meeting up for your own grils weekend, or just relaxing after a busy week, you’re going to love this and the vacation vibes you’ll feel with each sip.
Pro tip: If you don’t already have one, you may want to invest in a cocktail shaker set that includes a muddler. Here’s a really cute Copper Shaker set with Muddler.
