Sparkling Blood Orange Margarita with Prosecco

Description

This sparkling blood orange margarita with Prosecco is a fun twist on a classic cocktail. Garnish with fresh rosemary.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 5 medium-sized blood oranges
  • 5 limes
  • Silver tequila
  • Triple sec
  • 1 bottle of Prosecco (or Cava or other inexpensive dry sparkling wine)
  • Optional: additional blood orange slices and/or sprigs of rosemary for garnish

Instructions

  1. Combine the juice of all 5 limes and 5 blood oranges into a pitcher.
  2. Add 1.5 oz silver tequila per lime to the pitcher – about 5 shot glasses of tequila depending on your preferences.  You can reserve this mix in your fridge for 5-7 days if you want to make ahead or enjoy a fresh margarita throughout the week.
  3. Add about 0.5 oz of Triple sec per lime to the pitcher – about 2.5 shot glasses worth.  Mix everything in the pitcher (lime and blood orange juice, tequila, and triple sec) well.
  4. Prepare your cocktail glass by wetting the rim with a slice of lime.  Dip in margarita salt.
  5. Add ice to the glass.  Pour about 2-4 oz of the margarita mix into the glass.
  6. Top margarita with Prosecco or other dry sparkling wine.
  7. Garnish with a fresh rosemary sprig and blood orange wheel.

Notes

  • Don’t go big on the sparkling wine – buy something inexpensive.  Cava or Prosecco are your best choices.  Champagne is too expensive (and too high quality) to waste in a cocktail!
  • If you want to make just a single margarita, the ratio will be 1/2 lime:1/2 blood orange:1.5 oz tequila: 0.5 oz triple sec, topped off with Prosecco to your preferences.
