As a person who adores both margaritas and champagne, you can imagine my excitement when I discovered the brilliant idea to combine them.
This is beyond brilliant. This is the stuff people should win awards for coming up with… Is anyone surprised it was Rick Bayless’ creation? Didn’t think so.
Champagne is a perfect match for my beloved margarita, because it adds just the right amount of sweetness – and the bubbles provide a great balance against the 1:1:1 ratio of tequila, Cointreau, and lime juice. Plus, we now have an excuse to drink tequila at breakfast.
And my, oh my – champagne margaritas open the door for endless Mexican brunch menu opportunities, don’t they?
