Leave-It-To-Me Cocktail

The Leave-It-To-Me cocktail is fruity and fabulous. A touch of lemon juice brings out the citrus notes in the gin, which are tempered by raspberry syrup and maraschino liqueur.

Leave-It-To-Me Cocktail with lemon and raspberry

Think of this one the next time you’re in the mood for a grown-up version of pink lemonade. It’s refreshing and tart, but a little bit sweet, and oh so delicious. It’s perfect for summertime. Even if you normally hate gin, this one’s worth a try (I recommend Hendricks for this one).


  • 1 1/2 ounces gin
  • 1 teaspoon raspberry syrup
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon maraschino liqueur

Pour the ingredients into a mixing glass filled with ice. Stir gently. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon wedge and a couple of raspberries, if you have them on hand.
