The Firelight Cocktail from Hy’s Steakhouse & Cocktail Bar

Simply perfect.

Hy’s Steakhouse & Cocktail Bar knows a thing or two about simple elegance. The Canadian institution has been cooking simply perfect morsels of meat and sides since 1955 while remaining true to founder Hy Aisenstat’s humble Alberta beginnings. With this four-ingredient cocktail, Hy’s delivers another instant classic. By incorporating raspberry jam into the mélange of liquors and juice, this cocktail gains a sweetness and gentle viscosity that ingratiates itself to any palate.

1 ounce lemon juice

1 tablespoon raspberry jam (seedless jam, if available)


Raspberries for garnish
