Raspberry Rose Recipes

A few of our favorite cocktail and mocktail recipes to make with our Raspberry Rose simple syrup!


2 oz rye whiskey

1 oz grapefruit juice

.5 oz Raspberry Rose Crescent Simples

Some of our favorite cocktail recipes come from classics that call for muddling fruit or making your own fruit-based syrup. We love how convenient our product is for creating a cocktail at home that tastes like you put fresh fruit in it, even if you didn't have it on hand. The Blinker is just such a recipe, so this is our version of that classic cocktail. To make it, just add all ingredients to a shaker with ice, shake until cold, and strain into a coupe or a rocks glass with a single rock.

Champagne Cocktail

.5 oz Raspberry Rose Simple Syrup

3 dashes Angostura bitters

Top with champagne

Make it Zero Proof: Skip the champagne and opt for soda water and non-alcoholic bitters, like All the Bitter

For the classic Champagne Cocktail vibe, add bitters. If you just want to keep it simple, feel free to skip them. For non-drinkers, Raspberry Rose in a coupe or champagne flute with soda water is gorgeous and tasty. Garnish with raspberries, rose petals, or a lemon twist.

Champs Elysees

1.5 oz Cognac

.75 oz lemon juice

.5 oz Green Chartreuse

.5 oz Raspberry Rose Crescent Simples

2 dashes Angostura bitters

Roses and Paris just seem to fit together, and so do our Raspberry Rose syrup and this cocktail named after the famous boulevard in the City of Lights. We're actually a huge fan of Raspberry Rose paired with most herbal liqueurs, such as Chartreuse, Lillet, vermouth, etc. To make this cocktail, add all ingredients to a shaker with ice and shake until cold. Strain into a coupe and garnish with a lemon twist.


2 oz vodka

.5 oz cranberry juice

.5 oz Raspberry Rose Crescent Simples

.25 oz lime juice

Make it Zero Proof: Increase the lime to .5 oz and top with soda water

This is a Raspberry Rose Cosmopolitan, made by substituting the triple sec in the traditional recipe for our Raspberry Rose syrup. Cranberry and raspberry have similar sweet-tart flavor profiles, so this is a match made in heaven. To make it, all ingredients to a shaker with ice and shake until very cold. To get the ice chips you normally look for in a martini, the shaker should be so frosted on the outside that you almost don't want to touch it anymore! Then strain into a chilled coupe (if you don't have any pre-chilled, just fill your coupe with ice and a little water while you're making the cocktail) and garnish with a lime wheel.

Gin Rickey

2 oz gin

.5 oz lime juice

.5 oz Raspberry Rose Crescent Simples

Top soda water

Make it Zero Proof: Skip the gin, or use a zero proof gin like Ginish

A Rickey is a delicious, versatile cocktail that can honestly be made with any of our syrups. That being said, we love Raspberry Rose with gin. Add the gin, lime juice, and simple syrup to a shaker with ice and shake until cold. Strain into a Collins glass filled with ice, then top with soda water and toss back and forth into the bottom of the shaker to combine all the ingredients. Garnish with a lime wheel or some fresh raspberries if you have them.


2 oz aged rum

.75 oz lime juice

.5 oz Raspberry Rose Crescent Simples

.25 oz orange liqueur

This recipe is for a Knickerbocker, a classic cocktail from the 1800s named after Dutch immigrants and the distinctive "knickers" they wore. It normally calls for fresh raspberries, but our syrup is a perfect substitute. It's also incredibly easy to make...yet again, just add all the ingredients to a shaker with ice, shake until cold, and then strain into a Rocks glass filled with ice. If you have fresh raspberries on hand, garnish it with a few. If not, a lime wheel or wedge works perfectly.

Limoncello Lemonade

1 oz vodka

1 oz limoncello

.5 oz lemon juice

.5 oz Raspberry Rose Crescent Simples

Top with soda

Combine all ingredients in a Collins glass with ice and top with soda water. Stir with a barspoon to combine and garnish with a fresh lemon wheel or raspberries if you have them.

Mint Julep

2 oz Woodford Reserve Bourbon

.5 oz Raspberry Rose Crescent Simples

6-8 mint leaves

You don't need a julep tin to enjoy this cocktail, nor is crushed ice required, but if you have them they certainly make it more fun! A Collins or Rocks glass works just fine for the glassware, and you can crush your own ice at home if you get creative. When in a pinch, we fill a mesh reusable produce bag with ice and smack it with the back of an ice scoop until the ice is a size we're happy with. Add your liquor, syrup, and mint leaves to whatever glass you're using and muddle the mint gently and not for long -- you just want to express the herbs, not crush them. Add your ice to the very brim of the glass, top off with soda water, and slide a barspoon up and down along the inside of the glass to help mix the drink. Garnish with a mint sprig, and if you have it, some powdered sugar!


2 oz VSOP Cognac

.5 oz Raspberry Rose Crescent Simples

.5 oz Cranberry MOTHER shrub

Top with soda water

Shake the Cognac, simple syrup, and shrub in a shaker with ice. Strain into a rocks glass with fresh ice and top with soda water, then stir to combine.

Raspberry Lemonade (Zero Proof)

4 oz water

3 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice (the juice from about 2 lemons)

1.5 oz Raspberry Rose Crescent Simples

This recipe makes enough for one pint glass of lemonade with ice. It can easily be sized up as needed. We like to shake ours with ice before serving to get it extra cold for that thirst-quenching we're looking for, but you can just throw all the ingredients into a glass and give it a good stir with a spoon if you'd like. The wonder of a simple syrup is it doesn't need to dissolve! We love Raspberry Rose with this, but Strawberry Basil and Blueberry Lavender also work deliciously.
