Fresh Raspberry Margarita

I just decided it is unofficial Raspberry Week on this blog. It might be next week too since my in-law’s said they have more berries! If you missed it, do read about how much we love Fresh Raspberry Pie. If you need a quick salad dressing, I make a Berry Balsamic Vinaigrette using raspberry jam that is divine!

Now, let’s get on with the show…


It turns out, there is a super simple way to annoy your family on a hot summer day.

Tell them you are making delicious raspberry margaritas.

Make the glorious, ice-cold margaritas.

Then let the family know they can’t drink the margaritas until you’ve take one billion photos so you can write about this crowd-pleasing drink.

I’ve never seen so many hovering people.

Handy Husband actually made these raspberry margaritas.

He’s the bartender in the family and he takes his job VERY seriously.

He’s charming AND he makes delicious adult beverages. I can now see why he’s the popular one.

Since he does take his bartending duties so seriously, Handy Husband was equal parts enamored and HORRIFIED when he asked The Junk Whisperer where she keeps her blender and she whipped out this beauty…

The Osterizer. Dual Range. Touch-a-matic.

It’s a classic!

After a quick glance around to make sure we hadn’t time-warped back several decades, he said, “does it work?”

That earned him THE LOOK from The Junk Whisperer. “Of course it works!”

I don’t know if the Osterizer can grind up golfballs and iPhones, but it purées raspberries like a dream.

Here’s the recipe:

Handy Husband’s Raspberry Margaritas
(we usually serve these on the rocks, with sugar on the rim)
2 parts tequila
1 part Patron Citronge (or any orange liqueur)
1 part fresh squeezed lime juice
1 part puréed/mashed raspberries
1 part simple syrup (recipe – it’s easy!)

Now, if you just want to make regular margaritas, here’s the recipe:

Handy Husband’s Classic Margarita
(we usually serve these on the rocks, with salt of the rim)
2 parts tequila
1 part Patron Citronge (or any orange liqueur)
2 parts fresh squeezed lime juice
1 part simple syrup (recipe – it’s easy!)

He uses “parts” as a measurement so the recipe can scale however large you want. So, parts can mean ounces or 1/4 cups or 1 cup, etc. It just depends on how many you want to make and how large your glasses are!

Please drink responsibly. Yes, that means you.

In case you were concerned, all annoyances about my impromptu photo shoot were forgotten after tasting one…or two of Handy Husband’s Raspberry Margaritas.

And he was perfectly happy to continue being the popular one.
