Raspberry Sherbert-Tini


Raspberry Sherbert-tini | Cooking on the Front Burner

Being the optimist (or maybe wishful thinking) I know spring, then summer, is around the corner.  Time to be thinking of some tasty beverages to enjoy on those warm days.  This Raspberry Sherbert-tini is a cool and refreshing drink perfect for sipping.  When you can, grab some friends, go on the deck and make a batch!

I was motivated to make this drink because - well - we have booze that I need to use up.  I tend to want to make special drinks when friends come over and that usually involves buying a new bottle of something and we always have leftovers. A couple years ago I made a drink called the Babbling Brooke.  It called for (you guessed it) raspberry vodka.  We still have some left in the bottle and I decided to give it a mix with the sherbert and a bit of cream.  It's so smooth and creamy!

So I do think you could jazz this up a bit.  Maybe for Easter dip the rim in some fun pastel sprinkles or float a peep!  Also, you could make this non-alcoholic by leaving out the vodka and just blending the sherbert and cream to make it kid friendly.
