Ain't nothin' but a hound dog

My neighbours have a glut of raspberries from their allotment, so it was time to turn them into a drink.

A simple variation on the bloodhound seemed to fit the bill

I just swapped the strawberries for raspberries, I used a few more raspberries as they pulp down a lot more than strawbs do.

1 Large handful of raspberries
1 pt sweet vermouth
1 pt dry vermouth
4 pts Gin

Muddle down the raspberries, add the vermouths & gin, shake hard over ice, double strain. (This is the hard/irritating part as the pips & pulp clog the strainer quite quickly).

That's the resulting drink on the left, and that surprisingly is its natural, unenhanced colour. If you like raspberries and have enjoyed the other bloodhound variations, this should help perk up your summer drinking
