I love nothing more than a great cocktail made with vodka. Vodka is such a versatile alcohol and mixes so well with other flavors. Just recently Deep Eddy Vodka sent me a cocktail recipe I just knew I had to share. The Ruby Slipper Cocktail is a sweet cocktail with a spicy kick thanks to the fresh raspberries, watermelon juice, Deep Eddy Ruby Red Vodka and habanero cloves.

This refreshing cocktail is best sipped during the day with friends!
