Muddled Raspberry & Orange Spritzer

Looking for a refreshing and delicious summer cocktail? Try this ALO inspired muddled raspberry and orange spritzer!

muddle raspberry cocktail

Maybe it’s a recently revelation, but I’m completely obsessed with cocktails lately. I think it’s the closet hipster in me trying to break out, but I can’t stop shaking up vintage cosmos or old fashions or buying copper mugs for Moscow Mules. I am excited and in love with bitters and have more tarnished mint julep cups than I care to admit. When it comes time to arrange my concoctions, I plate them on a rustic tray or a scratched up piece of silver adorned with pieces of parsley or swirly straws.

ALO cocktail

The only thing missing from my hipster at home bar is a twirly mustache, a plaid shirt, overalls, lots of tattoos, a lumberjack looking sidekick with a long, twisty beard and a record player. I’ve even toyed with the idea of naming my cocktails something like “The Hemingway Shaker” or the “Twist and Shout.”


I know, I’ve become someone Anthony Bourdain would publicly shame on Twitter.

I can’t help it though, the act of creating the perfect libation brings out this crazily creative hipster that just can’t be hidden anymore. And as much as hipsters annoy me, with their poetry slams, crazy beards and rejection of conformity, they also do some pretty rad things for our food and cocktail culture.  How many amazing restaurants and bars exist now thanks to the “local food, speakeasy” movement brought on by our anti-mainstream youth?

raspberry orange spritzer

If I was to own a hipster bar or pub, this muddled raspberry and orange spritzer made with ALO would definitely be on the list.  For those who don’t know, ALO drinks are a new product that combine real aloe vera (from 100% organic pulp) and natural fruit sweeteners. There are 14 flavors in total, from ALO original to mango and cucumber to coco exposed. Each bottle is also not only low-calorie and naturally gluten-free, it’s good for your body too! Learn more here on the  ALO Website or on ALO Facebook!

    Their spells aid in removing curses, in teleporting and in conjuring up drinks and food.
