On the Rocks: Raspberry-Tangelo Spritzer

TGIF! It feels great to be back after a brief hiatus…wedding planning is in full-swing and Kelly and I are working on some pretty amazing stuff for the big day. In the meantime, I’ve mixed up a fantastic batch of luscious libations that I think you will enjoy. First up: this light and refreshing spritzer is deliciously tart, and super pretty!

I think¬†FRESH citrus is the key to any tasty cocktail…and the mix of lime juice, raspberries, and tangelo juice is perfection!

Ingredients:

1 shot of raspberry flavored vodka

Tiny splash of your favorite raspberry liquor

Fresh raspberries

1/2 tangelo

Lime wedge

Soda

*Muddle fresh raspberries and lime wedge in flat-surfaced glass, add vodka and raspberry liquor, squeeze the juice from the tangelo (watch out for seeds), and top with soda. Garnish with a tangelo twist and voila!
