Raspberry Sparklers -i

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Healthy Recipes, Beverages

 Ingredients List

  • 6 ounces raspberries
  • 5 tablespoons fresh orange juice (I used Clementines)
  • 1-2 tablespoons sugar (depending on tartness of raspberries)
  • 2-3 large basil leaves, roughly chopped
  • Champagne or sparkling wine


Put raspberries, orange juice, sugar and basil in a blender and puree until smooth and sugar is dissolved. Pour mixture through a strainer to remove raspberry seeds and excessive basil.

Spoon raspberry mixture into champagne flutes (I used 3 spoonfuls per glass), then add champagne slowly (raspberry mixture causes major foaming).

Garnish with raspberry, basil leaf, and slice of orange, if desired.

This recipe made about 3/4 cup of mixture; enough for 1 bottle of champagne.

I know this sounds like an odd combination, but the flavors really work well together. These drinks go down like punch, and even though it”™s pink and has a girly name, it”™s sure to please even the brawniest football fan.
