Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • 4-5 muddled raspberries
  • 2 oz {1½ shots} of citrus vodka
  • ½ oz of lemonade
  • 1 oz blue curacao
  • For Rim: Granulated sugar
Instructions
  1. Dip the rim of a martini glass in a shallow dish of water, then into granulated sugar to create the sparkly rim.
  2. Carefully muddle the raspberries in the glass, crushing until broken down. {Alternatively, you can do this in a sturdier glass and transfer the raspberries over to the martini glass with a spoon.}
  3. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine citrus vodka and lemonade. Shake until frosty and pour over raspberries.
  4. Hold a spoon upside down over the glass close to the liquid. Carefully and slowly pour chilled blue curacao over the back of the spoon. It should create a separate layer on top of the vodka.
  5. Serve immediately.
