This Raspberry Sloe Gin Fizz cocktail is bubbly, fresh and delicious! It’s made with Sloe gin and is one of my favorite mixed drinks.

A gorgeous holiday cocktail

I mean, how pretty is this raspberry sloe gin fizz?!  It’s got the red and green colors going on so it would be a perfect Christmas party or cocktail or if you don’t celebrate Christmas it still has general holiday/ winter vibes.

A perfect cocktail for a girl’s night or girl’s weekend

So I have to admit, the main reason this is one of my favorite cocktails is because it reminds me of the first time I ever had a gin fizz which was at the adorable Penn Wells hotel bar. My sister and I met up in the cutest little town of Wellsboro 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. Not even kidding. It was magical. And there was hot chocolate. Best sister weekend ever. Swipe to see a couple photos of our ice skating experience. 🙂

A must-try cocktail

This raspberry gin fizz tastes as good as it looks. Whether you’re hosting a party, meeting up for your own girls’ weekend, or just relaxing after a busy week, you’re going to love this and the vacation vibes you’ll feel with each sip.

Do I need to use sloe gin?

Yes, yo do need to use sloe gin if you want the correct flavor and bright red color that this recipe intends.

There are a few differences between gin and sloe gin. First, gin is a grain alcohol with juniper berries added for flavor whereas sloe gin is distilled using a sloe berry. Gin also has a higher alcohol content than Sloe Gin and is clear while sloe gin has a red color. (source)

Special tools you’ll need to make this cocktail

If you don’t already have one, you may want to invest in a cocktail shaker set that includes a muddler. You’ll need one to muddle the raspberries properly. Here’s a really cute Copper Shaker set with Muddler.

Make it a mocktail

To make this cocktail virgin, simply replace the Sloe gin with grenadine.

Perfect for the holidays!
