My New Summer Cocktail

Today we had friends over to celebrate June birthdays. It was the perfect day to sit outside and enjoy the yard while sipping girly drinks. I picked some fruit from the yard and decided to use them in a lemondrop variation. I just sort of threw things together and it literally turned into my new favorite drink of the summer. I thought I would share in my joy!

Raspberries (picked a handful from the yard)
Red currants (picked a handful from the yard)
Lemon juice (the bottled kind, unsweetened)
2 shots of vodka
2 tsp. sugar

Take the rasberries, currant, ice and sugar and muddle together in a glass or cocktail mixer.
Add the vodka and lemon juice and shake.
Serve in a sugar-rimmed glass. I used a small strainer over the glass to catch the seeds, there were quite a few.

I'm already dreaming about the next one!
