Fresh Raspberry Margarita

Cinco de Mayo cocktail recipe: Fresh raspberry margarita
Maureen Petrosky / TODAY

Chef notes

You may just find your new favorite cocktail with one tiny tweak on a classic. Here, I’ve added fresh raspberries to the traditional margarita for a pop of color and perfect hint of berry flavor. The small addition transforms the drink into a summery sip. Strawberries have the same effect — just be sure that whichever fresh fruit you use is ripe and perfectly sweet before adding them to your glass. 


  • ¼ cup fresh ripe raspberries
  • 2 ounces silver tequila
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • ½ ounce Cointreau
  • ½ ounce Framboise raspberry liqueur
  • Lime wheels, for garnish


In a glass, muddle most of your raspberries, reserving 3 or four for garnish. Fill the glass with ice.

In an ice-filled shaker, add the tequila, fresh squeezed lime juice and the Framboise raspberry liqueur. Shake until well-chilled. Strain into the glass and garnish with a lime wheel.
