The Fourth Day of Christmas…Raspberry Snowtini

written by Julie Cohn

On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…

Celebrate the Christmas season with this lovely Raspberry Snowtini Christmas cocktail!  Although there are a few steps to it, with some advance prep and the right equipment, this Raspberry Snowtini is actually very easy to prepare.  Coconut cream is blended with vanilla ice cream, then refrozen into “snowballs”.  The snowballs are placed in the center of a martini glass, sprinkled with flaked coconut and fresh blackberries, then drizzled with a Chambord, vodka, and Tuaca liqueur martini blend.  The Chambord adds a delightful raspberry taste, the Tuaca, an Italian brandy flavored with citrus, vanilla, and spice, adds holiday spice, and the vodka balances the flavors.  As the snowball melts into the martini, the coconut cream interacts with raspberry and spice.  What a festive holiday cocktail!

Did you know the original version of the Twelve Days of Christmas carol is not “four calling birds”, but “four colly birds”?  Colly birds are black birds, and the colly birds in this cocktail are black raspberries nestled in “snow”.   Be sure to sip these cocktails immediately after pouring the martini mix, as the “snow” melts quickly.

Raspberry Snowtini

  • 4 Scoops Vanilla Ice Cream
  • 3 oz. Coconut Cream
  • 4 oz. Chambord Raspberry Liqueur
  • 2 oz. Tuaca Liqueur
  • 2 oz. Vanilla Vodka (I used Absolut)
  • Fresh Black Raspberries
  • About 1 Tbsp. Shredded Coconut

(Makes two cocktails)

Blend the vanilla ice cream and coconut cream together in the blender. This is cocktail coconut cream, not coconut milk or water. Scoop the mixture out and place in sphere ice molds.*  Allow to set in the freezer for about 5 hours until solid.  Just before removing the “snowballs” place 4-5 ice cubes in a large cocktail shaker, then add the Chambord, Tuaca, and vodka.  Shake well.   Carefully remove the “snowballs” from the ice molds and place in the center of a martini glass.

Place four blackberries in the glass, and sprinkle with the shredded coconut.  Pour 1/2 of the martini mixture in each glass.  The snowballs melt quickly in the cocktail, but lightly stir it with a swizzle stick to incorporate the flavors.

Equipment

*Note:  I used the Tovolo Sphere Ice Molds for my snowballs, but if you are making cocktails for a crowd, use a larger ice mold, such as the Froz Ice Ball Maker, which makes four balls at a time.

Chambord Raspberry Liqueur

Chambord is one of my favorite liqueurs to use in cocktail mixology.  Made in France, Chambord is a blend of juiced raspberries and French cognac, vanilla, and herbs.  The result is a fragrant, lightly sweetened liqueur that tastes as lovely on its own as it does blended in cocktails.  The Chambord makes this Raspberry Snowtini so elegant and flavorful!  For more information about Chambord and how to use it in cocktails, visit their US website.
