Sometimes, I love a rainy day, but only if I don’t have much to do and can just stay inside and cook or bake something tasty.

If I have a lot to do and lots of errands to run, I can truly dislike the rainy weather, especially if a few rainy days occur one after the other.

Rather than get all down-and-out about the weather, I thought I’d celebrate the rainy days with a tasty adult beverage.

Behold, the magical marionberry-rosemary concoction lovingly dubbed the Raindrop!

I can’t quite put my finger on what it is about this drink that tastes like home. But it does.

If you’re not familiar with Marionberries, you are missing out.

I think they are the result of a weird blackberry-hybrid-experiment-thing conducted at Oregon State University.

Wikipedia says they are actually called “Marion Blackberries,” but to me they taste quite different than regular blackberries. Closer to a huckleberry or a boysenberry I suppose.

I’ve been hardcore crushing on the Wild Roots Marionberry Vodka and the Wild Roots Raspberry Vodka produced by Wild Roots Vodka.

So, I thought I would do some difficult tasting experiments to create some great Wild Roots Vodka recipes.

They make some seriously tasty libations, so I hope you can find their products somewhere nearby. Honestly, it’s worth buying it just to admire the beautiful bottle!

If you can’t find it, try using a raspberry or blackberry flavored vodka as a substitute (or even cranberry if you like living on the edge).

I think this Raindrop drink is my new favorite rainy day cocktail. I love sipping on one on days when it is overcast and I need a reminder of why I love rainy days. Which would be a reminder to relax and enjoy each day.

It’s too cold to tell right now, but I have a suspicion that these would be super refreshing on a hot summer day, too. You know, during those few way-too-hot weeks of the year when you actually MISS the rain? Yep. Make yourself a cool, fresh Raindrop!

  1. Hey there! I’m the Master Distiller at Eastside Distilling in PDX and would love to share your cocktail in our social feed using our Marionberry Vodka. It is nothing like Wild Roots, however as we do not add sugar and it is bottled at 80 proof. We will shoot our own image but will credit you with the recipe, albeit, with our twist.

  2. Have you ever made a pitcher of this cocktail and if so, what was the result? Going to an event this weekend where a pre-made cocktail would work best.

    • I’ve never made a pitcher, but there’s no reason why it shouldn’t work. Just wait until til the last minute to add the fizzy water so it doesn’t go flat.

  3. This cocktail looks so refreshing and I have to agree that those bottles are just so darn cute I could pinch them.

  4. Agreed on all levels. Portland can’t be beat in summer, and winter? Well, we tolerate it… but only because we’ve got cocktails. I hadn’t heard of Wild Roots but now I don’t think I’ll be able to rest until I get my hands on this stuff! Those bottles are pretty much the cutest thing ever. *swoon*
