Could this Justin Timberlake-approved cocktail be any girlier?

Like for real, could it? According to InStyle, Justin Timberlake quite enjoys a tequila-based, raspberry-infused concoction called (wait for it) Ruby Sparkler (!!!!). Nawww!  Anyone else thinking of Wizard of Oz here?

Jokes aside, the cocktail, which is delicious – trust my girly taste buds, is a take on an old favourite, ‘The Blinker’, and it’s been created by none other than  JT’s personal mixologist, Eddy Buckingham. Yes, the man has his own mixologist! I want!

Ok, ok, I bet by now you’re dying to find out how to make it. Don’t worry, señorita, before you cry me a river, here’s the recipe. 


Get your hands on: 
2 oz Sauza 901 Tequila
1 oz fresh grapefruit juice
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
3/4 oz simple syrup
5 raspberries, plus more for garnish

Get shakin’:
In a mixing glass, muddle five raspberries. Add remaining ingredients and shake. Strain before serving over ice in a highball glass. Garnish with skewered raspberries.

Ta-dahh! It’s not quite strawberry bubblegum but damn girl, it’ll give you amnesia.
