Raspberry Twist Ingredients

The ingredients you will need to prepare this cocktail are:

  • fresh or frozen raspberries (I like keeping frozen on hand because they are available year round)
  • lemons
  • Grand Marnier
  • white rum
  • white sugar
  • ginger powder (optional)
  • soda water
  • fresh mint leaves (to garnish)

You will want to have lemons on hand for freshly squeezed lemon juice and the beautiful lemon twist garnish.

The Lemon Twist Garnish

To make a lemon twist (also called a lemon curl), you will need a sharp knife or a vegetable peeler.

It’s easy and quick to do, so don’t skip out on this step! It adds visual appeal to the drink and a bright, citrus aroma.

If you like, you can put the blended ingredients through a strainer to get rid of all of the seeds from the raspberries. I personally like the crunch.
