Thirsty Thursday: Raspberry Beer Cocktail

 Now that it's spring time, I thought I'd go with a fun, yummy raspberry cocktail this week for Thirsty Thursday.  I found this one from Southern Living.

Raspberry Beer Cocktail

You can use fresh raspberries, but frozen taste just as good.

YIELD: Makes 6 servings
COURSE: Beverages, Beverages, Alcoholic 

3/4 cup frozen raspberries*
3 1/2 (12-oz.) bottles beer, chilled
1 (12-oz.) container frozen raspberry lemonade concentrate, thawed
1/2 cup vodka
Garnish: lemon and lime slices 

Stir together first 4 ingredients. Serve over ice. Garnish, if desired.

Note: To make ahead, stir together lemonade concentrate and vodka in a large container. Chill up to 3 days. Stir in raspberries and beer just before serving. Garnish, if desired.



  1. Interesting... does it matter what kind of beer you use? I'm having a big party and this could be fun to serve!

  2. I don't think it matters...I mean, I think I'd stick to regular light....mich ultra, bud light, etc. I don't know if I'd branch off to something heavy.
    I think this would be a fun beverage to serve. Good luck at your party...let me know if you decide to make it and how it turns out.

  3. This reminds me of pink panty droppers..have you ever had them? I think it's vodka, beer, and pink lemonade? I hate beer, but actually really like the combination!

  4. I've heard of them, but I can't say I've ever had them...they sound delish though. And I love the name. Haha.
