SPARKLING "CHAMPS" MOCKTAIL

Found on www.poofycheeks.com

DIRECTIONS:

  • In a small pitcher mix frozen lemonade concentrate and three cups of water.
  • For ice-cubes sprinkle raspberries into an ice cube tray and then slowly pour the raspberry lemonade mix over them. Set the remaining drink mix aside until later. **(If you are using deep ice cube trays I recommend only filling 1/2 way high so they will fit in champagne flutes).
  • When ready to serve add ice cubes to each glass and pour about one tablespoon of the raspberry lemonade in the bottom of each glass.
  • Top off the glass with sparkling grape juice and toast!

**If you don’t have enough time to make the ice cubes just sprinkle in frozen raspberries and add a bit more of the lemonade mix to the bottom of the glass instead!
