It’s been a long week here, but hope you have all had a great week. Although many of you probably celebrated happy hour yesterday for St. Patrick’s Day, how about a Friday afternoon cocktail to start off the weekend???
I had a half bag of raspberries in my freezer (still trying to figure out what I used the other half of the bag for?) and I also had a few fresh lemons that probably only had a day or two left in them. So this morning I thought I’d see what I could come up with to use these items up.
I also added a little mint liqueur to this cocktail for a different twist but you could certainly leave it out or if you have fresh mint that would be even better! Unfortunately, I did not have any fresh mint on hand and dragging the kids to the store to get some just didn’t seem all that appealing to me.
YES, I know I’m a little crazy measuring my drinks in tablespoons and teaspoons, but it’s easier for me so bare with me.:)
So the cocktail is all made and sitting in the fridge waiting for 5:00! Hope everyone has a great weekend!
