Yummm. This was my drink while making dinner last night and it was so good! I had blackberries in the freezer so I used those instead of the raspberries and I have to admit I add a touch more vodka than one tablespoon. Halved this recipe for one person. Thanks so much for a quick easy drink recipe and it's so pretty too!!
