The spin of raspberry flavor in this Gin Daisy comes from two ingredients. First is the Chambord, which is a black raspberry liqueur.
Chambord takes on its flavoring from blackberries, raspberries, honey, citrus peel, and Madagascar vanilla. Its taste adds a supporting flavor to this drink that rounds out the entire cocktail.
The second ingredient to add raspberry flavor to this drink is homemade raspberry simple syrup. It’s made with one cup of water, one cup of sugar, and raspberries on the stovetop in just 25 minutes.
Though it’s just a simple ingredient, it packs a punch of sweet raspberry flavor that helps to bring this cocktail to life!

Tips For This Raspberry Gin Daisy
- Cocktail Shaker – This recipe is made in a cocktail shaker to thoroughly combine the gin, raspberry simple syrup, lemon juice, and Chambord. If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, you can improvise by using any jar with a tight lid. A protein shaker or blender bottle would also work just fine. If you can’t shake the ingredients together, then you can stir them and strain the cocktail into another glass with fresh ice.
- Chilled – Enjoying a Raspberry Gin Daisy is best when perfectly chilled! This drink is shaken and served with ice, but you may also want to consider chilling the gin, lemon juice, club soda, and Chambord in the fridge beforehand. Doing so will serve up a perfectly chilled cocktail that’s delightful for sipping on those warm days!
- Measuring – Use a jigger or a kitchen measuring shot glass to measure the ingredients for this cocktail recipe. If you don’t have one, don’t worry! You can use a tablespoon. Just keep in mind that one tablespoon holds half an ounce when measuring out the liquid.
- Garnish – Bring this cocktail to life easily by simply garnishing it with fresh raspberries, fresh mint, and a lemon slice or wedge.
