RASPBERRY LIME VODKA COCKTAIL AKA THE PERFECT DRINK FOR ANY PARTY OR FRIDAY NIGHT IN!

I mean, I've never been been a big drinker and I'll never be one. Why did someone like me suddenly decide to make a raspberry lime vodka cocktail? Well, I had a bottle of raspberry flavored vodka that I had bought for a house party that was never opened. I didn't want to just let it sit in my kitchen like a useless little prop so I came up with the idea for this drink on a very hot day when I also happened to have fresh raspberries in my fridge.
And guess what, this raspberry lime vodka cocktail recipe is lushhh. I am in lurrrrv. 😍😍 If you're a total sucker for raspberries like me, you're definitely going to love it!

And it could also make a great date night drink or something you can enjoy when staying in on a Friday night. Plus, it's really easy to make and ready in 15 minutes. Isn't that amazing?!

The ingredients for this raspberry lime vodka cocktail are pretty simple. Here are what you need to make 2 drinks:
- 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup of water
- 8 raspberries
- 2 table spoons of raspberry flavored vodka or plain vodka (though I think you'll get less of the raspberry scent with plain vodka. So you can use more fresh raspberries than suggested above)

For garnish (optional):
- 4 raspberries
- 2 slices of lime

HOW TO MAKE RASPBERRY LIME VODKA COCKTAIL
1. Start by making some simple syrup. Simply dissolve 1/4 cup of granulated sugar in 1/4 cup of water over low heat. Then, set aside to cool.
2. Place a small mesh strainer over a glass and press 8 fresh raspberries (or a few more if you're using plain vodka) through with the back of a spoon. Discard the seeds.
3. Once the simple syrup is cool, combine it with the raspberry juice, 1/2 tablespoon of lime juice and 2 tablespoons of vodka.
4. Split the raspberry vodka mixture between 2 glasses. Fill the glasses with ice and add soda water.
