Begin by combining the sugar, lemon juice, and zest in a cocktail shaker. Muddle them together until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
Add the fresh raspberry halves to the shaker and muddle once again.
Pour in the triple sec, Tito’s vodka, Stirrings Pure Cane Simple Syrup, and mint leaves.
Add cubed ice to the shaker and shake vigorously for approximately 30 seconds- 1 minute until all ingredients are mixed together.
Strain the mixture into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a lemon wheel before drinking.
