Cocktail du jour: Kamikaze Fizz

Sometimes you just want a martini, and sometimes you want something a bit lighter and fizzier. I was a little indecisive the other night (shocking) about what to have around cocktail hour and couldn't make up my mind. This drink originally started out in a martini glass, but one sip and I knew it needed to be watered down or dinner would never make it to the table.

Mr. C&G took my Kamikaze, poured it into a tall glass, and fizzed it up a bit. Thankfully raspberry vodka goes pretty well with club soda, it's my standard order when a bar doesn't have a cocktail list. There was enough bubbly water to balance out the alcohol and dinner was on the table in no time. Although I'm sure the boys were keeping their fingers crossed for ordering in a pizza.
