raspberries, whiskey or bourbon, lemonade, mint sprigs
When thinking about our favorite warm weather fruits, raspberries immediately come to mind. They’re definitely a favorite berry, so we started thinking about infusing them into whiskey for a new take on the classic Manhattan cocktail, which uses cherries.
And my, oh my! This cocktail definitely delivers all the refreshing raspberry and strong whiskey notes we hoped for. So, if you love whiskey with a twist of summer, give this cocktail a shot—it’s a game changer.
½ cup raspberries
16 ounces whiskey or bourbon
3 ounces raspberry whiskey

Additional raspberry for garnish
Mint sprig(s) for garnish
