Raspberry Ginger Ale

I saw this great recipe for a Raspberry Ginger Bellini. It was something I would definitely try but the children were home. Instead, I figured I would try making raspberry ginger ale. The kids loved it. They thought it was the best thing ever especially when I poured the ginger ale and it fuzzed up. They also could have been excited about having soda since they don't have it often.
Raspberry Ginger Ale   Makes 2 serving sizes

1/2 cup raspberries
2 Tbsp simple syrup, if needed for sweetness
2 cups ginger ale

  1. In a small bowl (or measuring cup if you hate dishes), smash the raspberries.*
  2. Place 1/2 the smashed raspberries in a bottom of one glass and the rest in another glass.
  3. Add 1 Tbsp of simple syrup to each glass, if desired.
  4. Top with 1 cup of ginger ale in each glass.
  5. Serve immediately.
Recipe by Jen of Sweet Morris.
*Tip: I recommend you straining it if your were going to serve it to guest but the kids do not mind the seeds.

One year ago.........................I made Chock Full of Nuts Cookies.
