Elmer Fudd says: "This a gwate dwink if you wike waazbehweez or yowah going to kill da wabbit!" It's also a good drink if, as in the classic Prince tune, you happen to work part time in a five-and-dime (Younger readers -- you may need to Google the term five-and-dime. If you need to Google who Prince is -- don't tell me because then I will feel really old).
Sorry Elmer, but it's Prince who provided the inspiration for the name of this cocktail. There are other cocktails with the same name. What makes this one unique is that it uses Lupo lamponecello. Lampone is the Italian word for raspberry, and lamponecello is a raspberry liqueur made with raspberries, grain alcohol, and simple syrup.
2 ounces vodka (I recommend Zyr)
1 ounce Lupo lamponecello
Combine in a shaker with ice, stir as if you're riding down by old man Johnson's farm, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a raspberry.
This is a good drink for warm weather or if you're dreaming of warm weather. If it to sweet for you, just add a little more vodka. While the cocktail may not be fit for a king, it's definitely fit for a Prince.
