Cocktail Hour: Razzmopolitan
Hello there. Happy Friday!
Let me introduce you to the Razzmopolitan, which may very well be my favorite homemade cocktail yet. I upped the ante in the raspberry department by using a wonderful raspberry simple syrup, from the nice folks at Royal Rose Simple Syrups. Their products are amazing. They have some unusual flavors too, like Fenugreek, Anise -- and, of course, Rose. Check out their website where you can purchase their products online.
Fill a cocktail shaker half way with ice. Add:
1 ounce raspberry vodka
1 ounce citrus vodka
1/2 ounce Chambord (raspberry liqueur)
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon simple syrup
2 tablespoons cranberry juice
Shake and strain into a martini glass. Cheers!
Here's what I used: Absolut Raspberri Vodka, homemade Meyer lemon-infused vodka, Royal Rose Raspberry Simple Syrup
