I have a few bottles of Ketle One sitting around, thanks to a goodie bag from a recent wedding (I know! How awesome are my perks?), so I'm going to whip up some raspberry cosmos for tomorrow night. A little 2000-late maybe on the cocktail trends, but nothing this yummy should ever go out of style. AND, thanks to Tradewind Tiaras, a thoroughly modern take on cocktail garnishes. EDIBLE rice paper butterflies to rest on the rim of your glass, though any other shape created with a paper punch is possible too, and easy! Gorgeous, glamorous, and so 2012.
makes 1 pitcher, about 6 cocktails
- 2 cups good quality vodka, such as Ketle One or Grey Goose
- 1/2 cup Triple Sec
- 1/2 cup Chambord
- 2 cups cranberry-raspberry cocktail juice
- 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
- fresh raspberries, sugar, rice paper garnish...all the pretty extras!
P.S. I'm going to try making homemade raspberry vodka this summer. There is a restaurant in Seattle that has a huge glass container of vodka and raspberries, just sitting there on the bar muddling together and being heavenly in general. It's the most delicious and dangerous concoction, and the reason I first fell in love with raspberry cosmos.
Ok, seriously. Have a safe and delicious holiday. And see you next year!
