Raspberry Cheesecake Martini

Raspberry Cheesecake Martini
Another Friday is upon us! The weekend lies ahead, which means it’s the perfect time for a decadent cocktail. This drink, like the chocolate raspberry martini, is typically served after dinner, as a dessert cocktail. With its gorgeous lilac color, I think it would be wonderful as the signature drink for a bridal shower or bachelorette party, or to get a girls’ night out started off on a fun note.

The flavors in this cocktail are quite subtle, which I enjoy, although if you prefer sharper, stronger flavors, you could pump up the berry notes with some freshly-pureed raspberries. The martini is super smooth, rich and creamy, almost like melted vanilla/raspberry ice cream. This is the type of drink where the alcohol is barely noticeable,so be careful! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, + has the opportunity to relax, with this drink, or the cocktail of your choice.

the color is even prettier in person — a very pale shade of pinkish lilac. i really think they’d be wonderful for a girls’ night party, bridal shower, or bachelorette shower. they’re gorgeous *and* yummy.

If we ever have cocktails together you bring this, I’ll bring key lime martinis and we’ll trade. YUM!

Hi Peggy, I’d try substituting hazlenut liqueur instead of the raspberry liqueur listed here, if you remember the one you had having hazelnut as an ingredient. hope that helps!
