Spiked Raspberry Mimosa

Spiked Raspberry Mimosa with Casa Noble Crystal
Jeremy Flinkman is not a man who takes kindly to frilly drinks with silly straws and umbrellas.  So when I was playing with an idea I had for a sparkling margarita/mimosa to be served at a post V-Day brunch, I knew for sure he was not going to be a taker.

Fresh puréed and strained raspberries, a splash of Cointreau, portion of orange juice, dash of Orange vanilla sugar and a proper jigger of Casa Nobles, floated on a sea of New Mexico's Gruet sparking wine. Surely this was the girly-est of drinks.  For some reason self professed cave man Jeremy was a taker on this fruit filled cocktail, perhaps it was the unpretentious mason jar I served it in...

Whether you are dainty female looking for a special sunday brunch cocktail or a man's man just in from hours of snowmobileing, this drink is sure to have you resting, relaxing and enjoying.

Thaw frozen raspberries sprinkled with Orange Vanilla Sugar in a cocktail shaker.
Then muddle with Casa Noble Crystal Tequila and Cointreau. Add orange juice and shake thoroughly to blend.  Strain into cocktail, champagne or sporty mason jar glasses which are 1/2 filled with Gruet.  Pay homage to this fabulous tequila by salting the rims of whatever glasses you use.
