One of our favorite place to eat is Carrabba’s Italian Grill. Since it’s just the two of us we always sit by the grill and watch the staff prepare the food, it makes for great entertainment. We don’t usually buy alcoholic drinks with our meal but when we were dinning there with my In-laws I went outside our normal routine. I ordered the Carrabba’s Raspberry Martini (Razzamatini) and it was so delicious I could have sucked the entire drink down in one mouthful…but I behaved myself :)
After our visit there I started searching for a recipe for the Razzamatini and I actually found one. When I first tested the Razzamatini it was a little bitter and so I did just a slight adjustment and I think it’s pretty much right on, at least the way it was served for me that night. I tried it first using Smirnoff Raspberry Vodka and it was very good and then I tried it with Stolichnaya Raspberry Vodka (Stoli Razberi) and it was even better, so if you can get Stoli Razberi Vodka I would recommend that particular brand. I hope you enjoy this delicious drink, Skål and Cheers!
