Switching It Up….Gin Over Vodka For Summer Time Fun


Raspberry Sparkler cocktail incorporates some of my very favorite ingredients: raspberries, lemons, limes, and mint—topped off with gin and the just ever-so-slightly sparkly addition of vinho verde. Fortunetley my mint plant has exploded with yummy leaves…

Enjoy this easy recipe (Makes Four Drinks)
•1 pint fresh raspberries (muddled)
•1 lemon
•1 lime
•2 tablespoons honey (unless you like tart)
•Handful of fresh mint leaves (muddled)
•4 ounces gin
•4 cups vinho verde

Muddle raspberries, lemon, lime, honey, and mint. Distribute mixture evenly among four glasses. Add an ounce of gin to each glass, and fill the glass the rest of the way with vinho verde and ice cubes.
