Happy Hour’s Ripley Cocktail by Shaun the Bartnder

Ripley Cocktail

Ripley Cocktail

Nothing inspires me more in the summer than beverages and cuisine bursting with fresh ingredients.  Fruits and purchased at local a farmers market are perfect flavors for a delightfully cool cocktail.  That is what caught my eye on Shaun the Bartenders site this week.

Ripley Cocktail

  • 10 – 12 Fresh Red Raspberries
  • Juice of one Lemon
  • 1 Tsp. Sugar
  • 2 oz. Vodka
  • 1 oz. Triple Sec 

Method:  Begin by putting the sugar and raspberries into a mixing glass.  Muddle thoroughly until there is a uniformed blend.  Squeeze in the lemon and muddle again.  In a shaker tin filled with ice, add the measured amounts of vodka and triple sec.  Cap off with the mixing glass with the muddled ingredients and shake for a good ten seconds or longer.  Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.  Twist a rind of lemon over the drink and rub the rim with it before dropping it into the drink.

Drinking with fresh ingredients in the summertime, while the weather is hot and sticky, will keep you rejuvenated as well.

I do recommend that you take a moment and watch Shaun concoct this little beauty right here.  Also, pop over to his site and hit the follow button.  There is a new cocktail every day for your imbibing and entertaining pleasure.
