Drink Recipes - Cocktails and more
I cruise several cocktail sites each Friday to find a new cocktail to try or highlight for the week. I like to post a picture with each post, just to get you watering your mouth and keep the site looking good. So, when I came across this recipe without a picture from drinkoftheweek.com I wanted to find a picture. Here is the drinkoftheweek.com recipe:
- 2 oz. Vodka
- 1/2 oz. Chambord Black Raspberry Liqueur
- 2 tsp. Lemon Juice
- 2 tsp. Sugar
- Lemon Slice
Moisten the rim of a chilled cocktail glass with a little lemon juice and dip in 1/2 of the sugar to frost. Mix vodka and remaining lemon juice and sugar in a shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into the cocktail glass. Float the Chambord on top. Drop in a fresh raspberry or two to garnish.
Then I googled Raspberry Lemon Drop to see if I could find a picture, and I came across this drink description which I expect would be much less sweet and probably more to my liking. " mix of Bacardi Limon and Bacardi Razz served with a couple of raspberries in a generously sugar-rimmed glass." Could probably also use lemon and raspberry vodka's instead. Will have to tinker with the proportions.
