Raspberry ginger smash cocktail

This glorious mixed drink welcomes you to fall in style.

  • Yield: 1 cocktail
  • Prep time: 5 minutes

It's that time of year where it's kinda summer and kinda fall. You know, where you wear a sweater in the morning but suffer a heat stroke by afternoon. This cocktail is perfect for that transition. It's a bit sweet and tart like summer, but spicy and comfy like fall.


  • 2 ounces Bourbon
  • 1/2 ounce maraschino
  • 4 raspberries
  • 4 ounces soda water
  • 2 ounces ginger beer


Add the raspberries and a splash of Bourbon to a mixing glass. Using a muddler, smash the raspberries.

Add in the remaining Bourbon, maraschino, and some ice. Cover and shake for ten seconds.

Strain into a highball glass with ice.

Add the soda water and the ginger beer.

Garnish with fresh (unsmashed) raspberries. Oh, and if you are looking to hold on to those raspberries for a few weeks, look at this simple raspberry storage tip.
