This sparkling blood orange margarita with Prosecco is a fun twist on a classic cocktail. Garnish with fresh rosemary.
- 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
- Combine the juice of all 5 limes and 5 blood oranges into a pitcher.
- 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.
- 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.
- Prepare your cocktail glass by wetting the rim with a slice of lime. Dip in margarita salt.
- Add ice to the glass. Pour about 2-4 oz of the margarita mix into the glass.
- Top margarita with Prosecco or other dry sparkling wine.
- Garnish with a fresh rosemary sprig and blood orange wheel.
- 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.
