Cheers to Mom

In addition to being Mother’s Day, Sunday is also World Cocktail Day.

My mom has a passion for raspberries, so I’m planning to mix up a Chambord-based cocktail for her. A little Chambord with prosecco and a ripe raspberry (as in this lovely photo) would be fabulous.

Or I may make this:

Les Trois Amoureux

2 strawberries
6 raspberries
6 blueberries
2 oz white cranberry juice
1.5 oz vodka
0.5 oz sugar syrup
several ounces Chambord

Places berries in air-tight container. Pour Chambord liqueur over berries until covered. Marinate from 15 minutes to overnight. Muddle marinated fruit in base of shaker. Add other ingredients and shake with ice. Fine strain into chilled martini glass.

(UPDATE: I forgot to thank Coudal Partners for the World Cocktail Day link.)
