Sparkling Margarita Recipe for National Margarita Day

It’s National Margarita Day but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate with wine! Use sparkling wine to create the most delicious and festive margarita ever!
1cup fresh lime juice
1cup Cointreau
1cup silver tequila (I like El Tesoro and Partida)
Superfine sugar, if needed for added sweetness
1 lime, cut in half for serving
Coarse (Kosher) salt, for serving
1 bottle OneHope Sparkling Brut7ca8902ffd48fc6277fba0c02c4bac27.jpg

In a pitcher, combine the lime zest, lime juice, Cointreau, tequila and sugar if you are using it. Cover and refrigerate until cold, at least 1 hour).

Just before serving, strain the mixture to remove the zest, and pour enough salt into a saucer to cover the bottom. Rub a lime half over the rim of each champagne glass and upend into the salt to crust it lightly. Pour about 3 ounces of the tequila mixture into each glass, fill the rest of the way with Champagne or sparkling wine and hand to one of your lucky guests.
