Chandon Sparkling Margarita
How do you improve on the quintessential summer cocktail? Wetook a classic Margarita recipe and replaced the Tequila with Chandon Blanc de Noirs. Instead of a heavy, 80-proof spirit, this cocktail is based on a natural sparkling wine with only a 13% alcohol content. You get all the flavor of a traditional margarita with a light and bubbly personality. Just the thing for a summer celebration!
Ingredients1 tsp agave nectar
2 thin slices of lime
Chandon Blanc de Noirs
Kosher salt (avoid commercial Margarita salts and ordinary table salt, which is too high in sodium and will detract from the flavors of the cocktail)
Sprinkle a thin layer of Kosher salt into a flat saucer. Run one slice of lime wedge along the rim of a Champagne flute, turn over the glass and dip it lightly in the salt. Pour the Agave nectar into the bottom of the glass. Squeeze the juice from both slices of lime into the glass. Drop one lime peel into the cocktail and discard the other. Fill the glass almost to the rim with ice and top with Chandon Blanc de Noirs. Stir and serve.
