México 70

I haven’t posted a drink/cocktail recipe since last May. Thankfully, I had the chance to try many of my favorites this past summer. While summer is over, here is one we savored watching some great World Cup games.  It is a bit late for warm weather (at least in Wisconsin), but not too late to enjoy! Just feel the warmth!

I came across this recipe in the magazine, Food & Wine. It was developed in honor of the 1970 World Cup which was held in Mexico (Brazil won). It is a refreshing twist on the margarita and would be a great addition to a Mexican-inspired brunch menu.

México 70

1 ounce tequila, blanco (silver)

½ ounce fresh lime juice

¼ ounce agave nectar

3 ounces dry sparkling wine, chilled

1 lime wheel or twist for garnish

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the first three ingredients and shake well. Strain into a champagne flute or small margarita glass. Top off with the chilled sparkling wine and garnish with the lime.

Note:  We usually had it in less “fancy” glasses than shown above, like rocks glasses.  But the recipe calls for flutes.  You decide.
