Raspberry, coconut, and lime – oh my!

Labor Day is knocking on the back door, imploring you to bask in its sunshine and grill untold pounds of meats. One last romp, for old time’s sake, before entering the bitter cold of winter.

But I’m not quitting on you yet, summer. This combo of raspberry, coconut, and lime, which highlights the freshest ingredients of the season, is pretty much synonymous to sunshine and beach time.  Making this drink even more of a winner, the ingredients to purchase are incredibly light on the wallet and the recipe itself is far from ‘labor’ intensive.

….

I can’t believe I actually cracked that joke.  Forget I said that and go enjoy the cocktail!

Summer State of Mind

Build first three ingredients over ice in a Collins glass and top with lemon-lime soda. Optional garnish with a lime peel.

Cheers!

        Sure, Stephanie! I’ll be glad to photograph it, credit your name and put the link to your original recipe. I’m just having a hard time to find the Hiram Walker Raspberry Schnapps. I’ll have to find a way to substitute this ingredient.

        Cheers!
