Let’s Get To It!
First things first – put those margarita glasses to be used in the freezer!
Using a saucepan, combine fresh raspberries, sugar, and water over medium-high heat. Whisk combined mixture continuously while over heat. The berries should begin to break down and infuse with sugar and water. Cook for 4-5 minutes until you have a syrup-like texture. Remove from heat and let cool.
Once your fresh raspberry syrup has fully cooled down, pour mixture through a mesh strainer to catch any pulp or seeds.
Take glasses out of the freezer and line the rim with a wedge of lime and salt.
Add the desired amount of ice to each glass.
Take a cocktail shaker or blender and combine the tequila, lime juice, and raspberry syrup and a few crushed mint leaves. Shake, shake, shake it off!
Once well blended, immediately pour mixture over ice in frothy cold glasses with lime and salt rim.
Add a few mint leaves to the top of the glass and a wedge of lime.
