Ingredients

1 cup frozen raspberries
3 ounces tequila
2 ounces freshly squeezed lime juice
1 ounce triple sec orange liqueur
2 teaspoons sugar
garnishes: frozen raspberries, lime slice, rosemary or mint
glass rim: extra sugar

Instructions

  1. Take your frozen raspberries and run them under hot water until thawed a bit.  Then place the raspberries into a fine-mesh strainer and use a spoon to press raspberry juice into a bowl.
  2. Dump out 1/4 cup sugar onto a plate.  Get 2 glasses.  Wet the rim of each glass with water and twirl the rim around in the sugar to coat it.
  3. Into each glass place 1 ounce raspberry juice, 1 1/2-ounce tequila, 1 ounce lime juice, 1/2-ounce triple sec, and 1 teaspoon sugar.  Stir and add ice + garnishes.

For a non-alcoholic option: Replace tequila and triple sec with sparkling water.
