First off, you may have noticed something slightly different on my sidebar.
I know, I know – I once said I’d never have ads on this site, but well, I was…um…seduced by the thought of making a buck or two off of this blog, and well…you see. Sure you do.
Seduced, I tell ya!
At any rate, you don’t have to click on anything to make me any money, just let the little ad run and hopefully I’ll get a check for 23 cents every quarter. Seriously, though, FoodBuzz is a great foodie site and I’m thrilled to not only be a part of their community but also to have qualified to be a Featured Publisher (which gets me the nifty banner ad over there).
Anyhoo. Raspberry Cosmopolitans. This recipe comes courtesy of my sister-in-law, Tough Yankee Broad. Her version includes raspberry puree, so if you’re inclined to puree your raspberries, go right ahead – it certainly gives it a very intense raspberry flavor. I use the raspberries as a garnish because after you’ve finished the drink, in which they’ve been happily marinating, you can eat them.
1/2 part raspberry liqueur
1 part raspberry vodka
1 part vodka
2 or 3 raspberries
Combine all ingredients except the raspberries in a cocktail shaker with some ice. Shake well to blend, then strain into a chilled martini glass. Drop in the fresh raspberries.
Enjoy responsibly. And have a lovely weekend, y’all.
