3.5 shots out of 5
Yes.........I am still soar from softball. A year off is way too much! Time to start working out these softball muscles and what better way to start.....then with a cocktail! Tonight I turn to the Finest Call website for one of their recipes.
I gave tonight's cocktail 3.5 shots out of 5. I was hoping to like this cocktail a lot more then I did, and I think I was hoping that because today had been a loooong day. Basically what tonight's cocktail tastes like is a screw driver.....with a splash of raspberry flavoring. Don't get me wrong, the raspberry puree does add a nice flavor, but I can still taste the screw driver hiding behind it. If you're not in the mood for a fancy, sweet cocktail, then this just might be a good one to try. Plus I think it's fun to put these purees in mixed cocktails instead of just blended ones.
Here is the recipe for a Raspberry Driver:
- 1oz vodka
- 1/2oz raspberry puree
- 3oz orange juice
In a tall glass filled with crushed ice add all of the ingredients above and give it a good quick stir. I stirred until my raspberry puree looked sort of blended in.
Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to purees in mixed cocktails!
