Raspberry Kitten


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.

Ingredients:
  • 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.


And if you're wondering why I call Crockett the Raspberry Kitten - there's your answer!
