It’s so funny where you find inspiration. Each week, I try to give you Divas a new martini recipe. Earlier this week, one of my Twitter followers asked me where I get ideas for my recipes. I told her that these ideas come from everywhere…a conversation with a friend; a college memory; chocolate withdrawal (See The Choco Latte Martini). This week’s recipe was inspired by a beverage I had a Cosi during lunch yesterday. It was a Raspberry Mojito Lemonade, and it was absolutely fantastic! It was non-alcoholic of course, as I did have to go back to work. But it got me to thinking of a new twist on the classic mojito. Just like that, the Raspberry Lemonade Mojito Martini was born! (Try saying it three times fast!) I hope you like it!

2 oz Raspberry Lemonade

There it is! A new recipe created from random inspiration…story of my life! Enjoy! And drink responsibly!
