Fizzy Lizzy Cocktail

This simple, fruity drink is a cross between a top-shelf margarita and a champagne cocktail. Black raspberry liqueur sweetens the tequila and orange cognac mixture, while fresh raspberries and raspberry sugar garnishes make it festive enough for any party.

premium tequila
orange cognac
black raspberry liqueur
fresh lime juice
simple syrup, optional
raspberry sugar
raspberries, garnish
champagne

Preparation:

The "margarita mix" consists of two parts premium tequila, 1 1/2 ounces orange cognac, 1/2 ounce raspberry liqueur and a splash of fresh lime juice. Add simple syrup, if desired. Mix all of the "margarita mix" ingredients in a thin shaker with ice, a little diluted.

Get a good shake to get a good fizz. One-third of the glass is the "margarita mix" and the rest of the drink is champagne.

A wineglass should be chilled before you pour the drink. Cover the rim with raspberry sugar, but don't get any in the drink. To add fizz, drop a few raspberries in the drink.
