Named in honor of the women of our Mother-Daughter group, we gathered on what was the hottest night of the summer. And when it hits the triple digits in the PNW, we all tend to melt. So we needed something cool and refreshing after a hot day of parenting. Here was my heat-wave brain storm:
- 1 part raspberry vodka
- 1 part simple syrup
- 1 part lemon juice
- raspberry sorbet
Pour just a little sugar in a saucer. Take your glass and rub the rim with a slice of lemon. Twist it in the sugar. Drop a handful of ice cubes into a cocktail shaker. Pour all ingredients over the ice. Lid on. shake away. Then drop a few frozen (or fresh!) raspberries in the bottom of your glass.
At this point, you have a couple of options. You can go ahead and generously fill your glass–as we did with dinner… or…you can fill it leaving plenty of room for…a generous scoop of raspberry sorbet. hellllo, dessert. Drinking it as the sorbet melted right in? heavenly.
