1 cup water
3/4 cup superfine sugar, divided
A couple sprigs mint, stemmed and washed
3 pints fresh raspberries, divided
1/4 cup lime juice
1 bottle chilled Champagne
I like this recipe because there are a lot of fresh flavors that come together. You can make it sweeter by adding more sugar, fresher by adding more raspberries and mint and stronger by adding more vodka. In that way, it is a cocktail that becomes unique to your own taste. I also really like to use superfine sugar because it dissolves more easily.
