Margarita Sparkling Wine Cocktail

I’m all about easy, boozy drinks right now!  I’ve been experimenting with putting a twist on traditional cocktails by adding a California Sparkling Wine topper and I love the outcome!  

This Margarita Sparkling Wine Cocktail is a sweet, bubbly surprise that actually lightens the drink up without compromising the cocktail flavor.

I stocked up on California Sparkling Wine last week anticipating that we will be at home for the next few weeks.  I mean, how can we do this without a little bubbly?  

Let me show you how I made this one and I’ll even share a few more amazing Sparkling Wine Cocktails below so you can make your own at home….

 

The biggest star in this drink is the fresh lime juice.  Citrus is in abundance right now, so make sure to stock pile and juice ’em up! 

 

I wanted to keep this drink as close to the real thing as possible, so I used a cut lime and moistened the rim to help the salt stick to the glass. 

 

Add mint strips and ice to the glass and fill all the way to the rim, being careful not to knock too much salt back into the glass.  Pour in the simple syrup, tequila and lime juice mixture into the glass

 

Pour in the Sparkling Wine topper to the glass and gently stir to mix.  

 

 

 

I think you will agree with me that bubbles make everything better!
