Here it is! As promised, and served at my recent Dinner Party. These drinks are yummy, but first I must tell you:
A martini shaker
Ice (preferably crushed)
Razz-ma-tazz or other raspberry liquor
Sour Mix (not “sweet & sour” mix)
Squeeze of fresh lemon
Ice cold Martini glasses (I recommend storing them in your freezer)
My bartender husband uses a ratio of 1:1:1 which makes for a very strong drink. I make them with extra sour mix and sometimes add some lemonade or other juice to “lighten” them. But you basically fill your shaker about halfway up with crushed ice, then add equal amounts (use a measuring cup or other pouring device like a shot glass) of the vodka, raspberry liquor and the sour mix. Shake well. (Bartender husband advice: shake really well– till your hand is too cold to shake any longer!). Then, using the strainer that comes with your martini shaker, strain the drink into a cold martini glass. ENJOY!
And, if you think these look delicious, wait till you see what I just had the other day at the hairdresser (yes my hairdresser is very cool). A very yummy Carrot Cake Martini…recipe on that one coming soon!
