Over the years, I’ve come to realise that I’ve got a slight raspberry obsession. I’m not sure what it is that makes me love it so… but truth be told, there is very little to not like about its vibrant red hue and ease of being eaten (they’re bitesize!). Or maybe it’s just because I never ate much of it growing up – my childhood was predominantly filled with more ‘tropical’ fruits like rambutans, dukungs, mangoesteens and durians (all of which I miss terribly).
Let me paint you a little picture of summer in the south. The weather is in the mid to upper 90s all week with high humidity. The rumbles of thunder as storms move in during the afternoon sound ominous. The cicadas are singing and the frogs are chirping as the sun starts to set. A slow after dinner stroll creates such a sweat on your body that you need a second shower before you put on your pajamas. By the time bedtime rolls around, all I want to do is sit down with a refreshing drink. I survived the day without melting into a puddle on my kitchen floor. That alone is a reason to celebrate. This raspberry vodka mojito recipe with Pinnacle® Vodka was the perfect ending to an otherwise hot and exhausting day. And if you have any leftover vodka, check out my post on uses for vodka that don’t include drinking it!
