  • Champagne or Asti Spumante

  3. Serve with a lime wedge garnish and enjoy!
To Make The Raspberry Juice
  1. In a small pot, combine 6 ounces of fresh raspberries, 2 cups water, and ½ cup sugar. Bring to a rolling boil, continue to boil for 5 minutes.
  2. Remove completely from heat and allow to sit until completely cool. Strain the juice (mashing the berries to get every drop of flavor) and store in a sealed mason jar or bottle in your refrigerator until ready to use.
Notes
Asti is sweeter than Champagne, depending on you or your guests tastes choose what works best or simply alter the ratio above and customize the cocktail to your liking.
