Raspberry Ginger Bellini from Driscoll’s Berries


I’ve been traveling a lot this summer. One of the perks of this “job” is I often get invited to visit places to check out the food scene. I just got back from a culinary tour of Columbus, Ohio, and I am going salmon fishing in Alaska at the end of the month. Another interesting trip I recently took was to the Bay Area of California to visit a berry farm as the guest of Driscoll’s Berries.

It was a fun trip and I came home with a recipe I want to share. So I am going to do this backwards today. I am going to start with a recipe and end with a story. Because I tasted a cocktail at Pebble Beach Food and Wine that I just know you’ll enjoy. It’s a basically a Bellini made with super sweet Driscoll’s raspberries. The story is told through video. It’s the story of my day stomping through the mud at a raspberry farm.

I learned lots of cool stuff, but the coolest is this: You can trace the journey of your package of fresh Driscoll’s Berries all the back to the farm where they were grown. Turn over the package and you will find a label featuring a code that tells you about the farms where your berries were hand harvested. Find the code on your clamshell here!

But I promised the recipe first. And here it is. GREG

  1. I’ve never had ginger liqueur before, but man does that sound amazing! Plus, you just can’t go wrong with ripe summer raspberries.
