- Team Valour
Ok, I looked and I couldn’t find a cocktail for either Mystic or Instinct. I AM TEAM MYSTIC AND I AM VERY UPSET BY THIS. But I’m still going to put this here for Team Valors cos I am such a nice person. Recipe here.
So the three layers are meant to represent the three teams BUT IT’S NOT A WHOLE COCKTAIL TO YOURSELF IS IT. No, I’m not letting this go.
The Instinct layer is pineapple, the Mystic layer is blue raspberry and the Valor layer is cherry and they’re all laced with tequila. If you’re *really* keen to rep your team though, you can leave out the other layers and just fill a glass with your own colour *sips full glass of frozen blue raspberry margarita*. Recipe here.

Too many of these will make your eyes start to Poliwhirl.

Serve this to someone and it’ll have the same effect as a real Razzberry.
170ml. La Quintinye Royal Rouge vermouth
One bottle of Bisol Jeio prosecco
One cup of raspberries
Two tablespoons agave nectar
Stir together the raspberries, vermouth, and agave nectar in a pitcher. Let the mixture sit and chill in fridge for about an hour, stirring occasionally. Pour into six champagne flutes and top with the prosecco.
