Happy First Day of Summer!!! For cocktail hour today we’ll be celebrating with Raspberry Margaritas (or Razzaritas) in the shaker. This is a super easy recipe that you can make for one or two people or adjust to make a big pitcher for a small crowd…or one or two people.;))
Makes two drinks:
- 4 oz of tequila
- 2 oz lime juice, about 3 limes
- 2 oz orange liqueur
- 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
- 2 Tbsp agave nectar or more to suit your taste
- crushed ice
- lime zest
- 1/3 cup kosher salt
Juice the limes until you get 2 oz (1/4 cup) of juice. Blend together the raspberries and lime juice. Strain the mixture through a sieve into a small bowl to catch the seeds. Add in the agave.
In a shallow bowl or plate, grate the lime zest over the salt and mix it in. Dip the edges of the glasses in a little bit of water and then dip the glasses in the lime salt.
Pour the tequila, 4 oz of the raspberry mixture, orange liquor and ice into a cocktail shaker. Shake for about 30 seconds and divide among the salt rimmed glasses.
