  1. Place 4 fresh or frozen raspberries in a champagne flute or wine glass. Add sparkling cider and garnish with mint leaves.
  2. Serve immediately or let stand 10-15 minutes to allow the natural juices from the raspberries to be released, creating additional flavor and color. The “sparkle” will still remain!

Chef’s Note: Packages of frozen berries have a tendency to “clump” together or break down. You may use 1/4 cup of the frozen “broken” berries, if desired. For more “whole” berries, purchase fresh berries and freeze on a parchment-lined baking sheet in a single layer. When frozen, store in a smaller container or plastic bag.
