Boozy Raspberry Syrup

A quick post to brighten your week!

A syrup for everything. Seriously this raspberry syrup/sauce is fabulous on everything. It is great on a rich chocolate cake, ice cream, cheesecake, waffles, and decadent chocolate mousse. Lastly, it is a great base for a drink!

I am not a big drinker but mixed drinks with vodka are all right with me! That’s why I made a raspberry vodka soda with the syrup. It’s a perfect warm weather drink with a citrus punch.
