Cosmonaut

Cosmonaut cocktail with gin, lemon juice and raspberry preserves

This lovely little gem from mixologist Sasha Petraske tastes like a sweet berry candy, and couldn’t be easier to make.

Petraske’s recipe calls for raspberry preserves, which give it a flavor resembling an eggless Clover Club, and a color like the Cosmopolitan the name is a nod to. That said, this recipe is fantastic with every jam we’ve tried it with; we’re especially fond of it with apricot preserves.

If the jam you use has seeds, consider double-straining your Cosmonaut though a fine mesh sieve to keep the seeds out of your teeth. And do rinse out your shaker right away – those sugar-coated seed bits have a nasty way of clinging to the walls of the shaker and showing up as unwelcome stowaways in the next drink you mix up.
