These Raspberry Margaritas bring a little tequila, Grand Marnier, and lime together for a delicious party cocktail. There is nothing quite like a Raspberry Margarita. Raspberries are delicate, sweet, flavorful, and a favorite of all ages with a mouth-watering taste sensation!
Fresh berries make such a pretty cocktail for those special occasions and parties. I love to serve these for spring and summer holidays like Easter, Mother’s Day, and Memorial day. Served as a slushy ice-cold refreshing beverage or even dessert, it is sure to cool you off on those hot summer days on the patio or by the pool. They are so quick to come together that you can make them on the fly for unexpected quests.
For a little added sweetness, rim the glass with sugar. After all, raspberries are packed with flavor, and a little bit of sweetness complements them perfectly. When selecting raspberries, pick brightly colored, plump berries. As with all berries, avoid any that show signs of spoilage or mold. Fresh raspberries are fragile and highly perishable. Keep them in your refrigerator and use them within two days.
How do you make a Raspberry Margarita?
Start by spreading a little sugar on a shallow plate. Next, run the rim of the glasses with a lime slice. Now dredge the rim into the sugar. Then add the raspberries, Grand Marnier, Tequila Blanco, sugar, and lime juice to a blender and pulse several times. Add the ice and blend to desired consistency. If desired, garnish with fresh lime wedges and raspberries.

Thanks so much Lauren. I am so glad that you like them!
The perfect summer drink!
How could one make these Non alcoholic?
Well I think that I would omit all alcohol and perhaps add a touch more sugar. I think I would have a little lemon lime soda and see how that tastes with it. I think it would work out fine but I would taste before adding any. It might taste delicious without it.
