Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade Margatini

I first debuted this drink on my other blog last summer…when no one knew about my whimsy self{aside from my real life peoples} ergo, very few people have seen this and I wanted to share it again today on my new Foodie/drinkie blog. As will be happening lots over the next few weeks, I had more than one entry that never even got to be loved and adored by anyone but lil ole me;) Shame. haha
Anyways, this was a drink I ended up throwing together on one of my many visits home to Virginia and as usual I was asked to play bartender. I made use of what I could find on short notice and this was the end result.

Ingredients(for 2 glasses)

6 oz raspberry lemonade{I used simply lemonade}
1 1/2 oz citrus vodka
1 1/2 oz silver tequila
2-3 oz champagne/sparkling wine

put all ingredients except champagne into shaker w/ice and shake vigorously. Strain into martini or margarita glass. Top glass w/Champagne/wine. Tip to your mouth...and let the good times roll.
You can also make this frozen which I did once and yes, please. I added fresh raspberries when I did that. I also used Cointreau in lieu of vodka and have used sprite instead of the sparkling wine. You really can’t go wrong. But seriously…
Just know this goes down way easier than you may have intended. I mean…way. Easier. As in. you can take this as a hint to have a good time…or heed it as a warning. Your choice.
