Raspberry Margarita


Raspberry Margarita
After seeing a tasty looking recipe for a blueberry margarita, and then realizing that there were no blueberries in the house, I did what anyone should do... use what you do have, and have some fun along the way.  It was a rather simple recipe, and as it turned out, I can't imagine that blueberries would have made it any tastier than the Raspberries.  It has most of the ingredients of a more traditional Margarita, and adds a nice twist to the cocktail by adding granulated sugar to the rim (instead of salt).  It takes about 5 minutes to make a batch, and if you're like me, you can expect about 3 "ice cream headaches" as you inhale them.  We hope you enjoy this delicious featured cocktail... Raspberry Margarita.  Cheers!
4 oz. Tequila
4 oz. Raspberry Limeade concentrate (Limeade is fine)
4 oz. Lemon-Lime Soda
2 oz. Sweet & Sour Mix
18 (or so) Raspberries
1 oz. Orange Juice
1 Tbsp. Granulated Sugar
A dozen cubes of Ice
**Makes enough for two medium Margaritas
Add the Tequila, Triple Sec, Limeade Concentrate, Lemon-Lime Soda, Sweet & Sour Mix, Ice, and about 12 Raspberries to a blender.  Blend for about 2 minutes, or until it's the consistency that you like.  If you want to rim your Margarita glass, run the rim through the Orange Juice, and then tap it onto a saucer containing the Granulated Sugar.  The Sugar adds such a nice contrast to the tartness of the Raspberries.  Garnish with a Lime Wheel, and drop in a few Raspberries for the final touch.  It's simple, tasty, and sure to impress.  We hope that you'll give it a try... Raspberry Margarita.  Bottoms up!  Please drink responsibly.  Thanks!
