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.
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a small, chilled cocktail glass or coupe.
