While waiting in the doctor's office a couple weeks ago, I was flipping through a magazine and saw an article about a country singer, Miranda Lambert. She mentioned that she makes a cosmopolitan like cocktail that she calls a Mirandatini, which is rasberry Crystal Light, sprite zero, and vodka. I filed that super simple cocktail away in my memory banks and pulled it out again tonight.
Par for the course, I didn't actually have any of the above ingredients
Holy smoly, it is good ! Really nice and bright red, but it might be a little too light tasting for some for winter.
Edited to add: My friend Therese pointed out that that it actually rum in the photo, not vodka. All I saw was that it was a clear liquid, so I assumed it was vodka !
