Live Real. Eat Real.

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.

It sure looks pretty! I bought some pretty cups one time to put our summer lunch drinks in and the kids thought it was the greatest day 🙂 They love to be grown up!

Dude, you’ve crossed over to the dark side! Seduced by the sponsors! I’m betrayed, and still poorer. 🙂

Never been a vodka fan, but if you served me one of these I’m sure I’d be happy.

Glad to see site is back up, I came over earlier but it was about as fun as going to the fridge to get a beer and finding that you have a choice between ever-so-slightly-off coleslaw or some dodgy salad.

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 🙂

Duchess says:

Yes, I am glad to see you back too. Was it installing FoodBuzz that broke your blog? Might not be worth the 23 cents…

Two of my favs. What could be better than that? Sounds perfect for summer.
