SPARKLING RASPBERRY MARGARITA

This was a very light and refreshing cocktail - perfect for a summer afternoon.
If I made this again I would squeeze the juice from the orange and limes, and muddle the juice with the raspberries, agave nectar and tequila, as I could taste a slight bitterness from the skin and pith of the citrus.
Also, I would add a little more tequila - Mum and I both topped our cocktails with an extra shot.

SPARKLING RASPBERRY MARGARITA


1 orange, cut into pieces
2 limes, cut into pieces
1/2 cup fresh raspberries
2 teaspoons agave nectar
2 ounces white tequila
seltzer water

Fill 2 cocktail glasses with ice. In a cocktail shaker, muddle the orange, limes, raspberries and agave nectar with the tequila until the fruit is very pulpy and juicy. This should take about 5 minutes. Strain into the ice and top with seltzer water.
Makes 2 cocktails.
Enjoy!
