The reality of this is that I made this one day when I came home on my lunch hour. I had the plan all laid out, made the drink, photographed it, put it in the fridge, and it tasted it when I got home. D came home first at asked me if I was drinking at lunch again (ha ha) and I said no, it’s R & D. 🙂 The things I do for this little blog…
A nice little sort of sweet, fruity, and yummy martini. The raspberry in the vodka really comes through. I used Smirnoff Raspberry Vodka mini bottles that I got at Total Wine (love that place, they have EVERYTHING).
On a crazy Friday, it’s kind of nice knowing you have a delicious, chilled cocktail waiting for you when you walk in the door.
Electric Raspberry Martini
Yield: 1 cocktail
3 fresh raspberries
2 oz. Raspberry Flavored Vodka
1 Tbsp. simple syrup
1/4 oz. Grand Marnier
1. In the bottom of a chilled martini glass, muddle the fresh raspberries.
2. Combine remaining ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously and strain quickly (note: the vodka mix should pour a milky white from aeration).
3. Sip and enjoy!
