DIRECTIONS

  • In a cocktail shaker, mash together strawberries and raspberry preserves.
  • Stir in blood orange juice.
  • Pour in brandy and rum.
  • Add crushed ice and shake.
  • Strain into a tall glass (filled with ice or not).
  • Top with club soda and the juice from a key lime.
  • Float a scoop of your favorite fruit sorbet or sherbet, if desired. It helps sweeten this slightly tart/bitter drink.

  • Enjoy!
