Pink Raspberry!

Are you ready?  I have THE best Summer time recipe for you!  Now, this one is not for the kids!  I made up a batch of these last night for some friends and it was a huge hit!!  It is so good that I just had to share it. This will be your go to drink for the summer!

Pink Raspberry Cosmo:

Take Fresh Raspberries, wash, pat dry.  Lay flat on cookie sheet and place in freezer.  You will need these later!  (If you are near a Wegman's they are on sale this week!)

Get a large pitcher. (Pitchers with lids or strainer on top work best)  If you are going to serve immediately, fill with ice.  If not, hold off on the ice.

Add to pitcher:
1 cup Raspberry Vodka (Smirnoff makes one!)
1/2 cup Triple Sec
1/2 cup Rose's Lime Juice (don't use freshly squeezed lime juice - it will make drink cloudy!)
3 cups Cran-Raspberry Juice

Stir & put in fridge until you are ready to serve.

When you are ready to serve, take pitcher out, give a quick stir and fill with ice. 

Get your raspberries out of the freezer.  Place three in the bottom of a martini glass.  Pour Cosmo over raspberries, careful to not get any ice cubes in your drink.

Sip & enjoy!

This makes about 4-5 servings.  Definitely double (or triple) recipe if you are having a party!

Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!
