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.
