In a cocktail shaker, half filled with cracked ice, mix in the vodka, triple sec, lime juice and cranberry juice cocktail. Shake vigorously until feeling very cold on your hand. Pour through the shaker strainer into each of the glasses. Drop in one raspberry and very gently lay one or two gold petals on top.
