How To Make champagne margarita

  • 1
    FYI - a shot is equal to 1 1/2 ounces, so you can just use a shot glass to measure your ingredients!

    First, rim the glass - Pour the juice of 1/2 a lime into a shallow and flat bowl that's as wide as the mouth of your glass. Pour the kosher salt in a similar dish. Dip the rim of the glass in the lime juice, about 1/8" deep then dip into the kosher salt bowl. Lift the glass a little and tap lightly to shake off excess salt back into the bowl. Fill glass with crushed ice and set aside while you quickly make the margaritas.

    Combine lime juice, tequila, triple sec, honey, and a lot of ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake very vigorously so that the honey will mix with the other ingredients. Strain into the prepared glass and fill with champagne. Garnish with a lime wedge.
