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!
- 1 1/2 oz raspberry alcohol
- 1/2 cup raspberry sherbert
- 2 tablespoons heavy cream
- Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth
- Pour into a martini glass and enjoy!
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.
