RASPBERRY LEMONADE MARTINI

Today's drink recipe is awesomely easy, and can be served two ways- on the rocks (on ice) or straight up in a nice martini glass! Dani & I sipped on these by the pool the other night, and they were the perfect, refreshing, end of summer drinks! 

What you'll need to make them happen:
- Vodka (1.5 ounces per drink- I used Svedka)
- Fresh Raspberries
- Lemonade (I used CountryTime powdered)
- Ice & Toothpicks or skewers

How to make them happen:
Step 1: Mash a small handful of raspberries into 6 ounces of lemonade. You can use a spoon- or a blender if you're feeling REALLY ambitious. Let sit in fridge to get cold.
Step 2: Add your vodka to a shaker or glass with ice and shake like crazy until it's super cold. Pour into a martini glass, or leave in ice if you're having it on the rocks.
Step 3: Filter your raspberry lemonade mixture if you're drinking it straight up, or just pour it over ice & vodka as is. It's annoying as heck to try to drink little raspberry bits out of a martini glass- but isn't too bad with a straw :)
Step 4: Garnish with some skewered raspberries, and enjoy!


Easy, right? The lemonade keeps it just tart enough that you can drink one without feeling like you just drank a cup of sugar, but there's enough sweetness to cut the vodka.

I highly recommend this for a girl's night or a bachelorette/bridal shower!

What's your go-to, easy cocktail?
If you don't have one, feel free to steal this recipe!

  1. These look delicious! I'll admit, I'm not much of a martini girl (...maybeeee because I can only drink one before I'm drunk), but I love anything with raspberry!
