Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade Margatini

Margatini, is this a word? I only know that it is a mix of two of this chic's favorite drinks. I coined it one night and am afraid to google it for fear I will see someone else already has. Who wants to see their inferred genius laid to rest? Not I. haha so if someone else already thought this up...shhhhhh, don't tell me! ***addendum, I just looked. there are so many of us smarties out there. haha. boo.

 Anyhoo, quite frankly one of my favorite things ever is the Simply Raspberry Lemonade. I love that stuff, by itself or paired w/a tasty adult addition. I was in Virginia God's Country visiting family and ran to the store to make a quick drink for everyone and this is what I came up with. I think you will find this refreshing and way somewhat too easy to drink... consider yourself warned.

Ingredients(for 2 glasses)
6 oz raspberry lemonade
1 1/2 oz vodka
1 1/2 silver tequila
2-3 oz champagne/sparkling wine

put all ingredients except champagne into shaker w/ice and shake vigorously. Strain into martini or margarita glass. Top glass w/Champagne/wine. Tip to your mouth...and let the good times roll.
.

*I've made this a couple times since and I added cointreau once, good and sprite once. But the kicker was making it frozen, Yes, please! Just add all ingredients into blender and blend to desired consistency and then top off with the champagne/wine. It's also quite tasty with a sugar rimmed glass.
