What’s the best way to come out of your winter hibernation? With a tasty beverage in hand, of course! Check out these three delicious recipes for spring cocktails, provided by www.chow.com.

Raspberry Cocktail

Place cup of raspberries in a bowl, then lightly mash. Add gin and let macerate at room temperature for 2 hours, then place in blender and blend until smooth.
