Raspberry Dog Days Cooler

Celebrate the end of the Dog Days of Summer with this refreshing raspberry cocktail. It's simple to make, includes the fresh fruit they say we are supposed to have daily and relaxes you all at the same time. Perfection!

Julian's Raspberry Dog Days Cooler
 Ingredients (per cocktail)

6-8 fresh ripe raspberries
1 teaspoon sugar
juice from half a lemon
2 ounces raspberry flavored vodka
1 ounce cranberry juice
tonic water or lemon-lime soda

In the bottom of 6-12 ounce jar or cocktail glass, crush 2-3 raspberries with sugar. Stir in the lemon juice until the sugar is dissolved. Ad the raspberry vodka and cranberry juice. Add chunks of ice until the glass is about halfway full. Fill the glass with tonic water or lemon-lime soda. I prefer the soda, but either will work fine, as will ginger ale. Serve with a straw.
