One of my favorite things to do is create new cocktails. This is one of my favorites: the Raspberry Kitten. I named it after my mom's cat, Crockett.
- 2 oz lemon vodka
- 1 oz orange juice
- 1 oz lime juice
- 1 oz Grand Marnier Signature Collection º2 Raspberry Peach
- 1 cup crushed ice
My favorite vodka to use for this cocktail is Deep Eddy Lemon Vodka - it is really good and sour and made in Austin. For lime juice, Nellie and Joe's key lime juice is a must - RealLime and other lime juices do not compare. I like to use tangerine juice when it is available, but orange juice works fine.
Combine the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously.
Serve in a tiki mug or your glass of choice.
