Anyone else ready for spring? Are you planning your Memorial Day BBQ menu already, daydreaming about sunshine and temperatures over 50 degrees? No? Just me? Well, if you are too, I’m going to share this recipe for my Raspberry Margaritas. You can make the mixers from scratch if you’d like, or you can buy them pre-made. Making them will yield a MUCH better drink. I was a bartender for over 10 years, off and on, and the places that I worked that made their own mixers generally served a lot more drinks of this nature than those who bought whole-sale sweet and sour.
You can find my recipe for Raspberry Sauce that would be PERFECT for this right here.
For a good scratch sweet and sour mixer, check out Buns in My Oven. I made that for these last summer, and it was amazing! For a really easy simple syrup, check out A Less Processed Life. Her recipe is for vanilla simple syrup, which would be divine in this drink, but you can leave it out and make regular if you don’t have a vanilla bean laying around.
- 1 1/2 oz silver tequila
- 2 oz raspberry coulee
- 2 oz sweet & sour mix
- 1 oz simple syrup
- Sprite to fill glass
- Sugar to rim
- Rim glass with simple syrup, and then edge it in the sugar. Mix all other ingredients and stir.
