Do I stand alone in saying a margarita is the greatest drink ever made? Take my love for tequila and my horse- like obsession with salt, then combine it with my lingering want for bold flavor, and an adoration of margaritas follows naturally. Now, add champagne to the mix and you have just accomplished the perfect mix of good and evil. The bubbly in this drink just barely cuts through the acidity of the margarita without adding any extra sweetness. They are so easy to make and much more elegant than the average ‘rita. If you don’t just love LOVE these then you might be a super weirdo.
3 ounces tequila
2 ounces freshly squeezed lime juice
1 tsp. Agave Syrup
½ to 1 teaspoon orange liqueur (I use Grand Marnier)
Dry champagne, to top
Fresh lime juice, to rim
Kosher salt, to rim
Prepare your glass. Pour fresh lime juice in a shallow bowl or plate that’s just large enough to dip your margarita glass in and pour a layer of kosher salt in another shallow bowl or plate. Dip rim of glass in lime juice then in kosher salt, then add ice. Combine tequila, lime juice, agave syrup, and orange liqueur in a cocktail shaker with plenty of ice and shake vigorously. Pour over ice into prepared glass and top with champagne.
