Ingredients

  • 1 pint fresh raspberries, plus more for garnish
  • 12 fresh basil leaves, roughly torn, plus sprigs for garnish
  • 1 lemon, cut into sixths, plus wheels for garnish
  • 1/4 cup simple syrup, chilled (more if you prefer the cocktail a little sweeter)
  • 2 ounces Limoncello
  • 4 ounces citron vodka
  • Crushed ice
  • Sparkling rose wine, chilled

Directions

Combine the raspberries, basil, lemons and simple syrup in a small pitcher and muddle until the raspberries are mashed. Add the Limoncello and vodka. Let chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.

Put crushed ice into rocks glasses and add some of the raspberry mixture. Fill to the top with sparkling wine. Garnish with lemon and raspberries and basil sprigs if desired.
