Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake until chilled and strain. Add the drink back to the tin and shake again, without ice. Pour the drink into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with skewered raspberries.
0.5 cup Fresh Raspberries
1 cup Sugar
0.5 cup Water
0.5 oz Vodka
Smash the raspberries and mix thoroughly with the sugar. Allow them to macerate for 30 minutes. Heat the water to warm (not hot), pour over the fruit mixture and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Strain the mixture through a chinois and fortify with the vodka.
