Raspberry Lemontini!

April 22nd, 2012

Hello everyone, happy Sunday, I’m back and finally rested from the SNAP Conference!  It was a whirlwind three days, and I left Salt Lake City on Saturday completely exhausted.  I traveled with my sis, so we had a blast spending time together, plus I had the opportunity to meet a lot of bloggers I’ve never met and hang out with some blog friends too.  I didn’t snap many pics of the trip since I was running around everywhere, but I am looking forward to some of the recaps we’ll be reading in the upcoming days.

I promised the recipe for one of my favorite cocktails earlier this week, so here goes.  This one is fun for when you’re hanging out with the girls!  It’s a raspberry lemontini made with fresh ingredients that can be prepped in advance of your upcoming soirée.  Here’s the quick way to make them, enjoy!
