Raspberry Firecracker Sauce

This Raspberry Firecracker Sauce zings all your senses!  Jim and I were celebrating our eighth year together by reliving our first date at a local restaurant. As I recall, we had brie with fruit and coconut shrimp appetizers with red wine ..and something else. I think it was at that moment I became lost in the conversation with his blue eyes and compassionate manner.  The sauce we  had on that early October evening on their deck outside was a sweet orange sauce, but we both love raspberries so I decided to spice up the memory a bit.  It complimented the  Coconut Shrimp making that seafood flavor pop! We were not disappointed.
