Roseberry Vodka Cocktail


The Roseberry Vodka Cocktail is one of my most distinctive creations in the realm of mixed drinks. This innovative recipe stands out due to its unique blend of flavors and ingredients, setting it apart from the more conventional cocktail recipes I’ve worked on in the past.

Vodka, the primary spirit in this cocktail, is celebrated for its versatility and smoothness. Its neutral flavor profile makes it an ideal base, allowing the other ingredients’ flavors to shine through. The quality of vodka used is paramount; a high-quality vodka lends a crisp and clean canvas for the other elements to paint their flavors on. Vodka makes for the best choice of spirit in this recipe, as this is a cocktail with distinct and bold ingredients.

I got creative with this cocktail by using raspberry jam. Unlike fresh raspberries, the jam offers a consistent sweetness and a lush, velvety texture. The jam’s natural sweetness reduces the need for additional sugar or sweeteners, making the Roseberry Vodka Cocktail a refined choice for those who appreciate a less sugary drink. And as with many cocktail recipes, lemon juice adds a necessary acidity, cutting through the sweetness of the jam and providing a bright, citrusy note. It’s the lemon juice that gives the cocktail its invigorating character, making it a perfect choice for both summer afternoons and cozy winter evenings.

Apple cider vinegar might seem like an unusual cocktail ingredient, but its inclusion is what sets the Roseberry Vodka Cocktail apart. It introduces a subtle tanginess and a hint of fruitiness, complementing the raspberry’s flavor. The vinegar’s mild acidity is more mellow than lemon juice, offering a unique depth and a slight edge that intrigues the palate. I have to say, this isn’t going to be a huge hit for everyone, but it is definitely a drink worth trying at least once – after all, that’s the spirit of mixology!

Finally, dropping in a small handful of rosemary leaves into the shaker gives this recipe an herbal edge. When shaken with the other ingredients, the rosemary infuses the drink with its aromatic oils, imparting a whisper of herbal, piney notes. It really does tie all the flavors together!


Step 1: Add all ingredients into a shaker topped with ice. Shake until chilled.⁠


Step 2: Strain the mixture into a rocks glass over fresh ice.⁠


Step 3: Garnish with a raspberry skewer and a small handful of rose buds.⁠

The Roseberry Vodka Cocktail is much more than a mere blend of ingredients; it’s a finely crafted balance of flavors and textures.Its presentation in a rocks glass, adorned with a skewer of fresh raspberries and rosebuds, enhances its appeal, making it not only a pleasure to taste but also to behold. This cocktail is an excellent choice for those who appreciate a thoughtful and well-balanced drink, ideal for various occasions or simply as a delightful indulgence at the end of a long day.
