Aspen Times Weekly Libation: Blackberry Lime Rickey

by Jill Beathard


Rocks Glass

2 oz. Woody Creek

.5 oz. Agave Nectar

.5 oz Lime Juice

3 Large Blackberries

Top with Prosecco

In a mixing glass, muddle three large blackberries. Add ice, vodka, lime juice and agave. Shake, strain and pour into a half-raw sugar rim. Top with Prosecco and garnish with a lime wheel.

Refreshing, pink and served ice cold, this beverage at the Aspen Kitchen is the perfect summertime cocktail. While mixed with fresh blackberries, this cocktail is simple, so it’s not overwhelmingly fruity or sweet. It’s the perfect companion to happy hour on Aspen Kitchen’s wide-open patio, complete with views of Aspen Mountain, or before a dinner of some of Chef Matthew O’Neill’s family-style, farm-to-table creations. Its first summer in business, Aspen Kitchen will be open all season long.
