Sweet Tart Drink with Alcohol

I think I’ve found my new favorite drink! I created this Chambord and gin cocktail, and it was the perfect blend of sweetness and tartness.

As I tasted the flavors on my tongue I knew I would have to name it the Sweet Tart as it reminded me of those little candies.

A single sip sort of hits you in waves, much like the candies do. First you get a sour note from the lime before getting a hint of sweetness from the raspberry liqueur. The result is a drink that’s really refreshing and whimsical, and leaves you wanting more. I may have to deem this the cocktail of the season!

This drink is a bright orange color so it would make a pretty signature party drink if you host a ladies luncheon or for Easter entertaining. So why not set up a tray with the ingredients and tools you need to shake up this tasty beverage.

I think I’ve mentioned here many times that I don’t like cocktails that are overly sweet. This one hits the mark, making it perfect to pair with some happy hour appetizers or to serve before dinner.
