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
  • 1 oz raspberry puree (see below)
  • chilled rose champagne, to fill glass (plain sparkling wine or prosecco works, too)

Combine the elderflower liqueuer and raspberry puree in a champagne flute, and carefully stir together. Top with champagne and enjoy.

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.


#fbf to 1994 (ish) with my buds, @richardwiese and @wendirogerstv Bought that sport coat on sale for about 20 bucks because that’s all I had in the bank. Was 10% wool and 90% “other.” Got caught in the rain with it and smelled like wet dog ass all night.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️
