Raspberry Jam Margarita

by James Stevenson

My favorite thing is to create fun Margaritas using fresh fruit that I have lying around the house. This week I found some raspberries on sale and decided to use the leftover from my salad in my cocktail. In addition to the raspberries I sweetened up this tequila delight with some raspberry jam. Have fruit? Have jam? If you answered yes to any of these questions it is time to make a fun fruity Margarita!
