Raspberry Gin Fizz

Let's call up our closest friends, fire up the grill and drink this fruity, summer cocktail.

This Raspberry Gin Fizz is bubbly and a bit sweet, and every bit boozy. This is the perfect house cocktail for any and every summer celebration. Put this cocktail in your biggest carafe or pitcher and get the party started!

I always recommend enlisting your most trustworthy feline to watch over the beverage...

It starts with every fruit you can think of. A combination of sliced oranges, grapefruit. lemons and limes along with raspberries and pineapple chunks are soaked in a pint of gin lemon juice and a bit of water then chilled for a few hours--fruit infused booze is great booze after all!

For that great fizz, just before serving, pour in club soda and a whole bottle of champagne. Don't forget the sweet and wonderful Chambord for the perfect hint of sweetness. Pour into glass filled with a bunch of ice. Put on your sunglasses, sit back. relax and enjoy the summertime! {Drink Responsibly!}

1 lemon, sliced into rounds
