June is Pride month, and I couldn’t let it pass with out celebrating with a pride pour. I always give a donation to the Trevor Project, but this year I will also be donating to the Masha P. Johnston Institute in recognition of the Black Trans community.
This cocktail is a spicy raspberry fizz, inspired by the Gustav Vitae Raspberry Cane Sugar I used as garnish. The spiciness comes from the Bee’s Knee’s spicy honey, you could easily make a spicy simple syrup instead, but this is so easy if it’s already sitting in your panty. The four different flavors of garnish used are surprisingly delicious together, and even better with the drink.
2 oz. Fords gin
1 oz. lemon juice
0.5 oz. Chambord
0.25 oz. Etter Framboise Eau de vie
0.25 oz. Bees Knees spicy honey
Top with soda water
Garnish with Gustav Vitae Lemon Rosemary Sea Salt, Pink Lemonade Cane Sugar, Spicy Raspberry cane sugar, Spicy Smoked Sea Salt.
Combine all ingredients, except the soda water, in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake till chilled and diluted. Strain into a high ball glass over fresh ice, top with soda water. Using agave syrup paint stripes onto the glass and then sprinkle with the seasoning salts and cane sugars.
