Hello! I'm back with another cocktail idea that we found quite refreshing indeed (okay, mostly me, Ry doesn't like vodka much). I have always been a fan of coming up with drink concoctions and I think this was (and is) how I make up for not being a terribly good cook. I'd like to think of myself more as Cher's character in Mermaids; I could live on appetizers and fun drinks alone. These do not always include alcohol... but this one does. For those who do not want alcohol in theirs, or simply should not be having it (yes you, under-agers:), this would make an equally tasty drink sans the vodka.
* Organic Lemonade (this is just a tasty brand and was on sale)
* Smirnoff Raspberry Vodka
* Raspberry Compote (a.k.a frozen rasberries that had been melted)
Cocktails are always more fun with kitcshy glasses, so I started with our Ghostbusters II glasses. I added three cubes of ice to each glass. Then i put a couple of scoops of the raspberry compote in. I then combined the raspberry vodka and lemonade in the shaker and... shook. I used about two shots and then filled with lemonade for two glasses. Then, I poured the mix into both glasses and topped with a lemon wedge. Ta-da!
