The addition of champagne introduces a fizzy effervescence that makes this drink particularly celebratory and fitting for springtime occasions or brunch gatherings. It is typically served in a highball glass, allowing ample space for ice and the effervescent champagne topper. This cocktail, garnished with fresh raspberries and a lemon slice, is visually appealing and offers a balanced blend of sweet, sour, and bubbly components, making it a popular choice for those who enjoy a fruit-forward drink with a sophisticated edge.
