This sweet raspberry drink is hands down a blast from the past. 



Raspberry syrup

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh/frozen raspberries
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup water

To assemble

  • 3 cubes of ice
  • Club soda
  • 4 tablespoons raspberry syrup
  • 1 tablespoon half and half cream
  • Whipped cream
  • Maraschino cherry


  1. Add water and sugar to a saucepan and cook stirring occasionally until sugar has dissolved (approximately five minutes). 
  2. Add raspberries and mash to release juices. Allow to sit for one hour at room temperature. Strain through a fine mesh sieve using the back of a spoon to extract as much pulp as possible. Transfer to a clean jar and store in the fridge.
  3. Add ice to glass followed by club soda so that it is two-thirds of the way filled. Add raspberry syrup over the top, followed by half and half cream. Garnish with whipped cream, a maraschino cherry and a fun straw.
