Description

This raspberry margarita recipe has the best zingy berry flavor! This easy raspberry cocktail features fresh berries to impress all your friends.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 ounces* tequila blanco (or reposado)
  • 3 ounces triple sec (or Cointreau)
  • 2 ounces fresh lime juice
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries (or frozen**, if desired)
  • 1 cup ice

Instructions

  1. Cut a notch in a lime wedge, then run the lime around the rim of two glasses. Dip the edge of each rim into a plate of salt (or for a festive look, use our Margarita Salt).
  2. Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend until fully combined. Taste and add additional sweetener if desired. Pour into the glasses and serve.
  3. Pitcher (8 servings): Place 1 1/2 cups tequila, 1 1/2 cups triple sec, 1 cup lime juice, and 1/2 cup simple syrup, and 4 cups raspberries in a blender and blend until cold.

Notes

*To convert to ounces, 1 ounce = 2 tablespoons

**You can use frozen raspberries: just blend a little longer so the berries thaw. The texture of the drink should be liquid and not frozen.
