Raspberry Mint Martini

This really feels more like a smoothy than a cocktail. This is a very pleasant drink with equal taste of raspberry and mint. I will say this though, if you have a double strainers… use them! Even with a classic hawthorn strainer, the raspberry seeds are littered throughout the drink making it slightly less pleasant to spit out or chew the seeds.

Make Again? Yes, but needs a more thorough strain.
