Ravishing Raspberry ‘Champagne’
This bubbly, fun raspberry mocktail gives you all the fizzy pizzazz of champagne – without the alcohol, shooting corks, or nasty hangover. The bubbly comes from sparkling white grape juice. The fun comes from being served up in flutes. And the raspberry comes from frozen raspberry lemonade concentrate and actual frozen fruit you place in the flutes to add flavor and flair to the experience.
