Ruby Slipper Cocktail Recipe

I love this recipe for a summer cocktail that combines fresh summer fruits and herbs for a refreshing drink. Thanks to Deep Eddy for sharing this recipe today!


  • 2 oz Deep Eddy Ruby Red Vodka
  • 4 raspberries
  • 1 thin (de-seeded) habanero clove
  • ½ oz fresh Watermelon juice (you can find this at high end grocery stores or simply juice yourself)
  • 2 basil leaves
  • Splash of club soda


Muddle raspberries and habanero clove. Combine all ingredients, including 1 basil leaf, and shake vigorously with ice. Strain over fresh ice. Top with Club Soda and add basil leaf garnish.

Is this a cocktail that you would try? What changes, if any, would you make to the recipe?
