Instructions

  • In a shaker, muddle raspberries and mint until fruit releases its juice.

  • Shake well for at least 30 seconds
  • Use the leftover citrus peel to rim around your glass and dip rim in tajin.

Notes

This drink is highly customizable with other berries or citrus, so have fun with it!
If you like a smoother drink textually, strain the cocktail instead, but I love the bits of fruit and mint.
