Valentine's Day Cocktail

Love, actually, is a husband who can keep your cold toes warm, the smell of a newborn baby, the puppy-dog eyes your pets give you, and a fabulous cocktail. Happy Valentine's!

INGREDIENTS (serves 2, or one big cocktail if you're alone tonight :(

  • 4 fluid ounces raspberry vodka, chilled in freezer
  • 1 fluid ounce triple sec
  • The juice of one lime (don't use the bottled stuff, please)
  • 3 fluid ounces cranberry juice
  • A handful of frozen raspberries
  • 2 slices fresh limes

First, put the vodka, triple sec, lime juice and cranberry juice into a shaker add as much ice as you can. Shake. Shake. Shake.

Pour straight up in a martini glass, or over ice. Garnish with lime slices and frozen raspberries, which helps keep the cocktail chilled.
