Another outstanding and oh-so-easy cocktail to make for guests or just yourself from the River Café cookbook.  It works well with local seasonal raspberries and the ones that you can get any time of year in most supermarkets. It is not successful if you use frozen raspberries.  We found that it tasted like a premade bar mix.
