  • ¾ oz fresh lime juice
  • ¾ oz triple sec
  • *1/2 oz homemade raspberry syrup or Blackberry Patch raspberry syrup

  • Use your finger to “glaze” the glass with some of the blood orange juice or lime, then dip outside of rim of the glass into the sugar/salt mix.

Raspberry Simple Syrup:

  • *Bring a ½ cup of water and a ½ cup of sugar to a boil and stir until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and add 12 muddled raspberries. Let steep for 30 minutes. Strain if you prefer no seeds. Refrigerate for up to a week in an airtight container.
