AIMEE FORTNEY'S RASPBERRY GOAT CHEESE SPREAD
1 long roll of goat cheese (or two small)
1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam, heated
raspberries for garnish
crackers of your choice
Place goat cheese on a platter in the center, and place raspberries around it for garnish. In the microwave, heat seedless raspberry jam until it is runny; about 20 to 30 seconds. Drizzle jam across middle of goat cheese and around the platter. Serve with your favorite crackers.
AIMEE FORTNEY'S RASPBERRY FIZZ
2 ounces Raspberry Rum or Raspberry Vodka (I add both)
Sugar Rimmed Martini Glasses
Raspberry for Garnish
In a blender, fill it half-way full of champagne. Add two or three scoops of sherbet, then the shots of rum/vodka. Blend covered. (You do not want the blender more than half full of champagne, or you will have a big mess!) Cover a saucer with sugar and another with water. Dip the martini glass in the water to coat the rim, then roll the rim in the sugar to sugar-coat the glass. Garnish with a plain or sugared raspberry.
