Mixology Monday With The Leveretts - Black Martini

June 01, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

This week’s Mixology Monday is an interpretation of black, not as the absence of light to be feared but as a something sweet to be embraced. This cocktail highlights the black raspberry through use of a French liqueur called Chambord. Black raspberries are sweet fruits which grow in a thorny prickly shrub sometimes referred to as bramble. This concept of fruit amongst thorns is explored in our Black-tini cocktail which pairs sweet black raspberries with the, sharp tartness of lemon. We hope you enjoy. As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @ staynfocusimages
