πŸ₯« Storage instructions

I wouldn’t recommend trying to store leftovers. If you’e making these for a crowd, you can mix the vodka, raspberry liqueur, and cranberry juice a few hours ahead of time, then add the sprite at the last minue.

πŸ” FAQs

Do I have to use Chambord?

Nope. I mention it because it’s a well-known brand, but I always use the no-name black raspberry liqueur.

Can I make this non-alcoholic?

No. The raspberry flavor is crucial. Just give non-drinkers a glass of cranberry juice with a spider.

πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ³ Expert tips

  • For a less sweet drink, use ginger ale or tonic water instead of Sprite.
  • If you don’t have any black sugar, you can use regular sugar or leave the rim un-sugared.
