berry blush cocktails

a good cocktail is always welcome in my book. especially with guests. nothing says “welcome” like a vibrantly colored, fruity, refreshing and chilled drink. over the years i’ve accumuluted a couple of drinks recipes that i know by heart. they’re surprisingly intuitive to make, too. sometimes, i’m even confident enough to opt for a bit of freestyle, now. for this berry blush, for example, i roughly stuck to a recipe that i found somewhere, but then deviated from it (mainly in the measures… a little more martini? why not!). i nothing but squashed some raspberries, sweetened with a bit of sugar syrup, topped with martini bianco and vodka and filled each glass up with cranberry juice. freestyle summer goodness.

directions:
first, crush the raspberries. either muddle them with an, ahem, muddler, or blend them in a blender (which i preferred since i’m lazy like that). pour into a cocktail glass. add martini, vodka, simple syrup and orange juice. stir well. add a few ice cubes and top up with cranberry juice. add a mint sprig and maybe a straw (when you’ve got girls visiting, otherwise: omit the straws).
