Whether you serve mock-tails or cocktails to celebrate the

Before filling your martini or champagne glass,
roll the rim of the glass in Twang's special 
'Bohemian Raspberry Rimming Sugar', the latest in cocktail candy!
Cheers!

1-1/2 ounces Raspberry Puree(see below)
2 ounces apple-cranberry juice (I used Ocean Spray)
2-3 ounces apple-cranberry sparkling water (mock-tail)
-or-
2-3 ounces of champagne or raspberry vodka (cocktail)
1 sprig of mint, for garnish

Directions:  Place raspberry puree and apple cranberry juice in a martini glass or champagne flute.  For mock-tail, add sparkling water to fill.  Garnish with mint.  
For cocktail, add 2-3 ounces of champagne or raspberry vodka, in place of sparkling water.  Garnish with mint and enjoy!
Cheers!
To Make Raspberry Puree:
Use 1 pint of raspberries.  Place raspberries in the bowl of a food processor; process until pureed.  Strain through a fine mesh sieve that is set over a medium bowl; discard solids.  Keep in frig in an airtight container; use up within 2 days.

The 'Prickly Pear'

I went to Dallas to help with my friends' daughter's wedding, we had dinner one night at this uber-cool restaurant in the new art district of Oak Cliff. The restaurant was a fab design, over-the-top decor - industrialized in some ways, yet very upscale rustic.
I asked what the bartender recommended and before he could answer, a young woman sitting down behind me must have heard my question, because she quickly replied, "The Prickly Pear Margarita!" (Prickly Pear is a cactus in Texas!)...
When I saw the beautiful shade of fuchsia, I KNEW it had to be mine! (It was a shade of pink, after all!)
I wasn't disappointed...the super color melted into a super sweet-and-sour drink, with pink sugar crusting the edge of my martini glass...mmmm! 
Definitely a drink I'll go back for in Big 'D', at Tillman's!    Cheers!
