Driscoll’s Berries Raspberry Ginger Bellini & Video

I am going to do this backward today. I am going to start with a Raspberry Ginger Bellini recipe and end with a story. The recipe is a cocktail I tasted at Pebble Beach Food and Wine. It’s 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. Raspberry Ginger Bellini serves 1 CLICK here for a printable recipe
