Scrumptious Saturday...On Monday

So I totally flaked on the Scrumptious Saturday post this past weekend, out of excitement over my ultrasound pictures...sorry loves! So here's this weeks recipes on Monday instead...enjoy :)

Easy Raspberry-Lemon-Blueberry Parfait

2 cups of fresh blueberries
1 cup of fresh raspberries
2 - 8 ounce cartons of lemon yogurt
10 gingersnap cookies

In a food processor or blender, puree the fresh raspberries, or slice them into small pieces. Add the puree or pieces to the lemon yogurt, and fold into each other (do not whisk or stir heavily, it will ruin the texture of the yogurt). In a wine, martini or margarita glass, or bowl, layer the yogurt and blueberries (I do a layer of yogurt, then a layer of blueberries, and repeat once so that the bottom layer is yogurt and the top layer is blueberries). Crush up the gingersnap cookies, and top the parfait generously. Chill for 10 minutes or more in the fridge and serve cold.

Rum-Razz Cocktail (makes 4)

1 cup of fresh raspberries
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp lime juice
2 ounces of orange juice
2 ounces of Bacardi Razz
4 ounces of light rum

Muddle together the raspberries and sugar and add to a cocktail shaker. Add the remaining ingredients to the shaker, including ice, and shake well. Strain into chilled cocktail glasses and garnish with a fresh raspberry, lime twist and lime zest. Enjoy!
