Raspberry & Thyme Cocktail
Who loves placing a single raspberry on each finger and pretending they’re E.T or Amélie? (Tamzyn raises her hand enthusiastically and without shame or embarrassment).
Life is all about the simple pleasures and noticing small gestures. Using our favourite bubbly, fresh raspberries and thyme, we created the perfect cocktail celebrating the simple things.
Raspberries are an excellent source of vitamin C, manganese, dietary fibre and have the highest concentration of antioxidants among all fruits. Paired with one of the most underestimated herbs in your fridge; the thyme and raspberry flavours compliment one another beautifully. We often take thyme for granted. As it’s been available so freely for so long, we have forgotten that aside from the culinary uses for this herb, it has incredible medicinal powers. It even has the power to affect neuron activity, leaving you feeling uplifted.
It seemed only logical that combining these two ingredients with our favourite Cap Classique would yield the perfect cocktail to celebrate the long awaited rain in Cape Town today. Celebrating all the happy feels.
- 1 cup Raspberries
- Few sprigs of Thyme
- 1 (750ml) bottle of your favourite Cap Classique
- Place raspberries and thyme in a glass and gently muddle the berries to release all those lovely summer flavours.
- Fill each glass with your favourite Cap Classique/Sparkling wine.
- If you would prefer to keep the drink clean, keep the raspberries whole and add them after you’ve poured the Cap Classique.
