Today marks four months into my third of the way there!!! Thanks to all my followers, it has been really fun. I have to admit the first month was a bit tough, but it has become a great time of every day.

I know it isn't Friday, but I thought today deserved a fabulous summer cocktail!!! Berries are everywhere and you can certainly combine various berries in this cocktail, but I love the taste of raspberries in champagne!!!!!
2 lime wedges
1/2 cup fresh raspberries
1/4 cup good vodka
1/4 cup chilled champagne
4 teaspoons of sugar (and extra to dip your glasses)
sprig of mint for garnish
Wet the rim of two tumblers with lime juice from the wedges. Dip the rims in sugar. You can certainly leave this step out if you don't like the sugar taste...seriously though!!!
In a cocktail shaker add lime wedges, raspberries, vodka and sugar. Using a muddler or end of a wooden spoon, smash the mixture in the shaker. Add ice and shake for 10-15 seconds. Divide this mixture between the two glasses, don't strain it. Top with champagne..and CHEERS!!!!
Thanks again!
