I like my job, but I have received a more lucrative offer from another company. How do I get a raise without leaving my company?

I have received an offer from another company to do the same job at a much higher salary. The new company is offering me 25% more money. I am also aware that other people at my current company with the same job as me are getting paid in this higher range, but they have more experience than me.
I could go to my boss and explain that I have another offer, but my fear is that she may say "if you have a better offer somewhere else, you should take it.". Our relationship has been frosty at times during my tenure.
Am I out of luck, or is there a way to play this?
