Raspberry Vodka Mojito Recipe and Everyday Reasons to Celebrate

This #PinnacleCocktailClub raspberry vodka mojito recipe has been sponsored by Pinnacle® Vodka .  All opinions expressed here are my own.

Let me paint you a little picture of summer in the south.  The weather is in the mid to upper 90s all week with high humidity. The rumbles of thunder as storms move in during the afternoon sound ominous.  The cicadas are singing and the frogs are chirping as the sun starts to set.  A slow after dinner stroll creates such a sweat on your body that you need a second shower before you put on your pajamas.  By the time bedtime rolls around, all I want to do is sit down with a refreshing drink.  I survived the day without melting into a puddle on my kitchen floor.  That alone is a reason to celebrate. This raspberry vodka mojito recipe with Pinnacle® Vodka was the perfect ending to an otherwise hot and exhausting day.

Celebrate with a Raspberry Vodka Mojito!

Raspberry Vodka Mojio with Pinnacle Vodka

With the kids home for the summer since mid-May, our schedules have become rather lax.  We have very few places to be and are in no hurry to go anywhere.  A few weeks of company, a trip to the beach, and a whole lot of time spent relaxing on the patio are the only things on my agenda.  But, just because my summer is lazy and unproductive doesn’t mean I have nothing to celebrate!  There are so many things that I choose to celebrate during the summer and Pinnacle® Vodka is helping me do it with a delicious raspberry vodka mojito in my hand.  What am I celebrating this month?

  • My teenager waking up before noon without me having to nag at him
  • Finding a gift card in my wallet that actually still has money left on it.
  • Hitting the snooze button less than three times
  • Cooking dinner without setting off the smoke detector
  • Remembering everything on my mental grocery store list while shopping
  • Finishing a book…and then starting a new one!
  • Mopping the floor.  Even if the dog then proceeds to get muddy paw prints on it again.
  • Crossing at least one thing off my to do list.  Even if that one thing was ‘Make a to do list’
  • The incredible array of fresh fruits, herbs and vegetables at my local farmers markets.  And having my kids show an interest in cooking them.

  1. Raspberry? Vodka? I'm sold! I'm definitely going to be making this for the weekend.
  2. Stephanie Keeping says:
    This sounds pretty good. It would be very refreshing on a hot day.
  3. Rocio Chavez (@yoursassyself) says:
    OMG that looks so delicious and refreshing, I can't wait to make one! Thanks for sharing :D
  4. Such a good combination! I just had Sonoma Brothers Vodka for the first time and its great in cocktails. So smooth! I will try this one for sure because I've been so into cocktail recipes lately. So much more fun to experiment at home than spend 12 dollars on a cocktail at dinner.
