Happy Tipsy Tuesday my friends! I am so excited to bring you today’s drink! Why you ask? Well I will tell you. This is a drink my son made for me. I have mentioned in the past he is a bartender extraordinaire, and he has come up with some wonderful drinks for me to post on Tipsy Tuesday in the past. But I had a special treat with this drink. I got to watch him at work for this one. Yes, I went to see him “in the act” for this weeks post. He is so good (yes Mom is bragging) and the customers just love to watch him do his thing. I can tell you that if it was me behind the bar shaking those cocktail mixers as fast as they do the drinks would be everywhere but in the glasses!!
He knows I like lemon drops so he had been asking me to come in so he could make me his twist on one, but I rarely get out at night which is when he works. This night Kevin decided he wanted to go play pool so I was very excited to be able to try my “treat”. As soon as he made this for me several people at the bar wanted to know what it was and a few ordered one as well. No one was disappointed I can guarantee you that. I was not the only one to order a second one.
This is not a difficult drink to make, which is great for me!! I wish the picture was better but bar lighting is not that conducive to good photographs. It is really a pretty drink as well as tasting wonderful. It is sweet and sour all at once. Very pleasing!!
Raspberry Lemon Drop
1/2 lemon, sliced
1 ounce raspberry vodka
1 ounce sweet and sour

Using a damp paper towel wet the martini glass by pressing it onto the towel upside down and twisting. In a cocktail shaker, muddle lemon. Add ice, raspberry vodka, sweet and sour, triple sec, and lemon lime soda. Shake to mix. Strain the mixture into the martini glass. Carefully pour the Chambord into the glass.
