Are you watching Shark Week !? Here’s a fun and easy cocktail to make over the weekend or even at your next party this summer. I tend to favor the fruit flavored drinks over the mints or vanilla inspired so if you are like me you are going to love this raspberry refresher. And don’t forget your swedish fish and goldfish snacks for Shark Week!
Here is a tip on mixing high and low: always serve the highest quality alcohol and as the low invest in less expensive glassware. I picked up this glassware from Ikea and they are great for every occasion… formal to casual. They even work well for orange juice in the morning!
Start by adding 2/3 cup of ice into a blender and add more as needed. Use small pieces of ice over large chunks. Add the ingredients into an 8 ounce cup in the below order and then add to blender and mix. Top with raspberries or other fresh fruits.
1/2 cup fresh raspberries
1 1/2 ounces raspberry vodka
3/4 ounce simple syrup
1 ounce fresh lime juice
