Raspberry Lemonade Cocktail

It's Thursday Slow Roasters!  You know what that means...  LADIES NIGHT!  Tonight we are serving up a light and tangy cocktail to celebrate summer.

Everyone is looking for cold refreshing drinks with temperatures sizzling all over the country.  What better to cool you down than a cold summery cocktail?  Raspberries and lemon make the most delectable lemonade and this cocktail is a scrumptious adult version.

As a surprise to follow up my new found love of Cherry Limeade Cocktails, Chad surprised with me with a bottle of Raspberry Pucker.  The first thing out of my mouth was Raspberry Lemonade Cocktail!  So, off he went to the mixology lab to create this sensational drink for you!

Sweet grenadine mixes with the tart Raspberry Pucker and lemon juice to create an incredibly delightful cocktail.  Watch this one ladies, it goes down so smooth and its so fabulous you will be making more!


Raspberry Lemonade Cocktail
serves 1
2 ounces Raspberry Pucker Vodka
2 ounces club soda
1 ½ ounces fresh lemon juice
½ tablespoon grenadine
lemon wedge

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.  Add vodka, lemon juice and grenadine to shaker, shake to combine.  Pour soda into a short glass and strain vodka mixture into soda.  Garnish with lemon and raspberry cocktail martini pick.  Swirl pick in drink and serve!
