…from the Happy Hour Bar
How you doin’? Golly gee… it is “berry time” in Mayberry, and cocktail time everywhere. When you think of Margaritas don’t limit your thinking to Cinco de Mayo. Margaritas are an anytime, anywhere cocktail… ask Jimmy Buffett—It’s always 5 o’clock somewhere.
This cocktail’s pinky coloring and sweet raspberry flavor will appeal to happy hour seekers who want a show-stopping drink that goes down easy. One that has plenty of booze, but not too sweet and not too stiff.
The heart of the drink is the raspberry syrup. The syrup is simple to make by just whirling up the raspberries with simple syrup (see the recipe below). We added a little lime juice to give it brightness and depth, like you would with a fruit pie to take the edge off the sweetness. Those berry syrup flavors soften the tequila and triple sec, so that the overall impression is a perfectly ripe, slightly tipsy raspberry. It’s a refreshing break from citrus-forward margaritas.
Prep time: 5 minutes
Yield: 1 serving
Margarita salt for rimming the glass
2 ounces tequila
1/2 ounce triple sec
1 ounce raspberry syrup
1 ounce freshly-squeezed lime juice
Garnish with a lime wedge and a couple raspberries
Raspberry Simple Syrup
4 ounces simple syrup (refer to Lesson #48 French 75 Cocktail for Simple Syrup recipe)
4 ounces fresh raspberries
ChefSecret: Try using other berries for a refreshing change—blueberries or blackberries.
