  • 250g raspberries
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon brandy
  • Champagne or sparkling white wine to serve


Blend raspberries, juice of a lemon, caster sugar and brandy in a food processor.

The puree should be shiny and all the sugar crystals dissolved.

Press through a course sieve to remove the seeds (this is a bit tedious, but do persevere). Store in a glass jar in the fridge.

To make the cocktail, spoon two teaspoons of raspberry puree into a champagne glass, carefully pour in sparkling white wine or champagne.



  • Try making the puree the day before, so you can simple mix and serve the cocktails on the day you need them.
  • Any leftover raspberry puree can be used to serve with chocolate cake or icecream.
