Raspberry Tequila Gimlet

The plethora of ripe berries right now have been wonderful in any drink, especially with a little tequila.


 I myself enjoy a clean tequila cocktail not one that is too sweet but with fresh lime juice and the sweetness from berries makes it a great refreshing drink for a holiday weekend.  Raspberries, blueberries, blackberries and even strawberries are all in season; get creative mix it up, make some great cocktails and share your drinks with your friends.


The classic gimlet originated in 1928, it was half gin and half lime juice. This inspired me to try tequila since lime goes so well plus a tart, fresh raspberry!  You can’t go wrong!
