Raspberry and Thyme Royale

Jammy berries and fragrant thyme star in this Raspberry and Thyme Royale – a fruity, fizzy twist on a Kir Royale cocktail. The raspberry purée gives the drink a pretty summery hue, while the bubbles create a special-occasion feel – an English sparkling wine will work especially well. In autumn, you could swap the raspberries for blackberries and the framboise for crème de mûre or cassis.

  • 350ml chilled dry sparkling wine
  • 200g raspberries, plus extra to garnish
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp fresh thyme leaves, plus extra sprigs to decorate


Step 1

For the purée, cook the raspberries in a small pan over a low-medium heat with the sugar, lemon juice and thyme leaves, stirring occasionally until the fruit has broken down and the sugar has dissolved.

Step 2

Strain the mixture through a sieve set over a bowl and push the fruit through with the back of a spoon to create a purée (discard any seeds left in the sieve), Leave to cool, then chill for at least 1 hr.

Step 3

Stir the framboise into the chilled raspberry purée until combined; divide the mixture between 4 wine or copa glasses filled with ice.

Step 4

Top up each glass with sparkling wine and gently stir to combine. Garnish with extra thyme sprigs and a raspberry.
