Berry season is in full bloom, and we’re taking total advantage while we can. Strawberry peach popsicles, blueberry oat muffins, rainbow fruit salsa… you name it, we’re cooking (and eating) it. But with all this talk about strawberries and blueberries, we almost forgot about raspberries, the unsung fruit that many consider to be the most intensely flavored member of the berry family.

These tender gems make the perfect addition to a fruity mocktail complete with cranberry and apple juice, plus a dash of elderflower syrup — which, if you haven’t tried before, can best be described as sunshine in a glass. It’s floral, fragrant, and strong enough to hold its own when in the company of other bold fruit juices.
