“A splash of red
Swirls in the green,
It’s like December
With summer in-between.
Bubbles of sweet
Tangy with mint,
It’s the whole deal
Not just a hint.
Refreshing & cool
Snowman in my head,
I hear the bells ring
And hit the bed.”
1 bottle Champagne/Prosecco/Sparkling wine, chilled
1 cup fresh raspberries
½ cup mint leaves
½ cup Pimms
1 teaspoon honey
Sprite to taste
Ice cubes
Muddle the mint leaves with the raspberries and honey. Combine with ice and Pimms and shake it up well in a cocktail shaker. Pour into a martini glass, filling it 1/4th. Top with bubbly and sprite. Garnish with mint  and raspberries and serve immediately! A pure heat cheater (and quite potent!)
Alternative: Freeze the drink, and then churn it in a blender to serve a smoothie version!
