Happy #NationalVodkaDay! I’m excited to celebrate this holiday with all of you and I figured a really fun way to do that would be with a recipe that will get you ready for another holiday. Halloween is my absolute favorite, and if any of you feel the same you will appreciate this recipe. If you’re planning a Halloween party, this is a recipe you need to serve! A raspberry martini, with a spooky twist!
Can we talk about the cute little drink tags? I found them in the candy aisle at Target and I am absolutely obsessed with them. They had all different little cute sayings on them. I went for spooky and poison for this festive cocktail.
Have you tried the Smirnoff infused vodka’s yet? Raspberry is one of my absolute favorites to play with for cocktails so I thought that this would be a fun twist for a Halloween martini.
Once you’ve got your Smirnoff Raspberry all you’ll need is fresh squeezed lime juice and fresh raspberries. It’s super easy to make this Halloween martini.
- 3 fresh raspberries
- 1½ ounces smirnoff raspberry vodka
- ½ fresh squeezed lime
- 3-6 raspberries for garnish
- In a cocktail shaker, muddle the raspberries with the lime juice.
- Add the smirnoff raspberry vodka with ice.
- Shake and strain into a well chilled martini glass.
- Garnish with one raspberry and a drink tag.
