Raspberry Tequila Fizz

Tequila and raspberry tied up with champagne...these are a few of my favorite things!

Honestly, though. All of my faves in one drink.

There's tequila, triple sec, lime, raspberry, and champagne. I will drink basically anything made with tequila or champagne, so I made a cocktail with both. I'm a genius.

Plus, this color is so dreamy. What's not to like?

I had leftover raspberry simple syrup from when I made Raspberry Swiss Rolls a few weeks ago, and it was a welcome addition to this drink. It's easy to whip up, and can keep in your fridge for up to one month. I prefer to enjoy my cocktails a little less sweet that most, so keep in mind that you may need to add more syrup than called for if you prefer things a little sweeter.

The ingredients are simple, as are the tools needed. Gather up these babies:

  • Silver tequila
  • Raspberry simple syrup
  • Triple sec
  • Lime juice
  • Prosecco
  • Lime & salt for garnishing

I used a cocktail shaker to chill and fully incorporate everything, but it's definitely not a necessity. Simply shake or stir the liquor, syrup, and juice together in a short glass and top with prosecco.

Easy peasy, and so satisfying.

This can be our post-Valentine's-Day-still-want-to-drink-and-eat-everything-pink cocktail. Okay? Okay.
