Raspberry Russians - A perfect holiday cocktail recipe

Cheers to the holidays! Here, have a drink.

Or two.

Because that’s what the holidays are all about, after all: friends, family, and a good stiff drink to tide you over until they all leave (just kidding, of course, I’m over exaggerating. But I think we can all agree that a little booze makes everything better).

Raspberry Russians - A perfect holiday cocktail recipe

This recipe is a twist on a classic White Russian, with black raspberry liqueur in place of the traditional coffee, and some fresh muddled raspberries for even more fruity flavor. This festive drink may just be your new favorite holiday cocktail, not to mention a perfect addition to your holiday party. A nice alternative to the typical boozy holiday beverages like mulled wine and eggnog.

Make raspberry ice cubes for festive holiday cocktails

While normal ice cubes are fine and dandy, raspberry ice cubes are easy and add an extra element of fun and festivity. Easily make your own by filling a silicone ice cube tray 3/4 full with water (slightly under-filling each cube will account for the volume of the raspberry) and plop a single fresh raspberry in the middle of each cube. Freeze overnight until solid. These raspberry ice cubes will make for a stunningly unique presentation, and you’ll get a little fruity bonus in your glass when the ice finally melts.

Raspberry Russians - A perfect holiday cocktail recipe

This cocktail would be perfect as an accompaniment to a decadent holiday dessert, served alongside a bittersweet chocolate tart or buttermilk chess pie, almost like a dollop of liquid whipped cream (only better).

  1. with so many flavored vodkas out there, I might try a chocolate or lemon or orange?

  2. Three cheers to cocktails for the holidays! This is gorgeous. 

  3. Prettiest holiday cocktail I’ve seen all season!  And I love the flavors too.  But those raspberry ice cubes take the cake!  This is such a fun idea Lindsay!  

  4. May be better with milk, light cream, or half &a half. Besides that, it’s great
