{ raspberry mist cocktail and giveaway! }

welcome back from the holiday excitement! hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. today i'm sharing a cocktail with you that i mixed up myself. i may not be a mixologist, but i think i have a winner here.

as a frequent entertainer. i like to make something special and specific for each occasion. usually, it's something super simple. so when sierra mist asked me to mix up a yummy cocktail, i thought i would step it up... for me at least:)

i created a "raspberry mist"! kind of a spin off of a margarita using similar ingredients. adding the sierra mist in gave it a more crisp and refreshing taste though. here's what you'll need:

[tequila, i used this, a tequila liqueur, so tasty]
[triple sec]
[lime juice]
[frozen raspberries]

muddle about 5 frozen raspberries with 1 1/2 oz. tequila

add 1 oz. triple sec, 1 oz. cointreau, 1 oz. lime juice, shake it up...
before you pour, mix up some sugar and salt and dip the rim of your glass in it. i loved the sweet and salty flavor this added.
and finally...

top with about 3 oz. of sierra mist natural, drink and enjoy
