Amor Prohibido Cocktail {Inspired by Selena}

Inspired by one of Selena’s most memorable songs the Amor Prohibido cocktail was our final cocktail served at my Raised on Selena event. Fresh strawberry juice, tequila, topped with champagne, this cocktail also pays homage to Selena’s vibrant red lip color in her Amor Prohibido video.
