The Grateful Dead cocktail blends four white liquors with Chambord raspberry liqueur. Since it’s equal parts everything, this one is super easy to make anytime, anywhere – or make in a pitcher to keep guests topped up all evening.
With this cocktail, you can taste what you’re getting into. It’s a pretty intense drink.
Because the recipe is written in parts, you can make this a shot or a long drink or whatever you like. Serving it over ice is an option too, since it’s strong enough to deal with being a little bit watered down.
And that makes it a nice choice for cooling off by the poolside or after a night of dancing. Or just for coping with a heat wave.

Try the Purple Hooter Shooter, with its refreshing combination of Chambord, Rose’s Lime and vodka.
