The Kelly by Clinton Kelly: A Sparkling Cocktail

Raspberry is one of my favorite colors: you'll find it in my spring Kelly by Clinton Kelly collection for QVC and here—in this cocktail I created to celebrate the line. It’s elegant, effervescent and strong—just like my fashion muse Grace Kelly. I know she would have loved this pink drink, and you will too! Sip one wearing a pair of my Pull-on Knit Pants. Grace would approve.

  • 1 oz elderflower liqueur

Raspberry Puree

  • 1 pint fresh raspberries or 1 c frozen raspberries, thawed
  • ⅓ c simple syrup

Puree until completely smooth. Strain through a fine mesh strainer to remove seeds.


Mary would like to thank the lovely, generous people who gave me stuffed toys for her while I was on book tour. As you can see, she thoroughly enjoyed them last night when I returned home. Would you mind coming over this morning to clean up their guts, which have been strewn in every nook and cranny of our apartment. Thanks! 😘
