Star Spangled Raspberry Tequila Soda #FWCon #BerryDelish

What is Red White and Blue and refreshing for you?? The answer is…My Star Spangled Raspberry Tequila Soda. #FWCon #BerryDelish

If you will be entertaining this summer, be sure to keep this recipe on your list for a cool, bubbly adult beverage. Just leave out the tequila for a great mocktail and the kids will have a sparkling drink too.

I created this colorful drink for the Wish Farms Berry Delish recipe contest. The winners will be announced during the 2017 Food Wine Conference presented by Sunday Supper Movement. Using fresh fruit for a drink is fun and bright. I decided to use raspberries as my base of the beverage and then garnish with whole blueberries. A little fresh squeezed lime juice adds fresh tartness and goes so well with tequila.  Wish Farms is one of the great sponsors of the conference. They are also giving away great prizes for the top three cocktail/mocktail recipes.

A Star Spangled bubbly drink fit for any grand get together. The fresh raspberry puree blends well with the fresh lime juice and silver tequila. The fresh blueberries add the special garnish that decorates the drink perfectly.

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces fresh raspberries
  • 1/2 cup fine sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 8 ounce tequila, silver
  • 17.2 ounce bottle berry flavored sparkling water, clear in color and chilled
  • 6 ounces fresh blueberries
  • 8 Straws
  • Ice cubes
  • 8 Tall glasses (to hold 8-10 ounces)

Instructions

  1. Add the raspberries, sugar and water to a blender and puree until smooth. Pour the puree through a fine sieve, stirring and pressing the mash to extract as much raspberry puree without the seeds. This will yield about 1 ½ cups. Add the fresh lime juice to the puree and stir.
  2. Add several blueberries to the bottom of each glass. Fill with ice cubes, dropping extra blueberries among the ice cubes.
  3. In a large pitcher, add the raspberry puree and tequila and stir until blended. Slowly stir in about 14 ounces of the berry sparkling water. Pour the raspberry cocktail into each glass stopping about an inch from the rim. Top each cocktail with about ½ ounce of berry sparkling water and a few more blueberries. Add a straw and serve.
