Raspberry Cosmopolitan

First off, you may have noticed something slightly different on my sidebar.

Yeah.  That.

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.

Yum.  Yum.

Raspberry Cosmopolitan

serves me

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.

  1. Congrats on Food Buzz – at .23 cents a quarter will you remember the little people when you are rich & famous?

    The Raspberry Cosmo is my ABSOLUTE favorite – you can substitute black raspberries if you’d like.

    WARNING – they will kick your butt!

    Glad to see you back up 🙂
