Celebrating Cinco de Mayo ~ Mexican Sidecar

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Today I remodeled my favorite sparkling wine sidecar recipe to be a bit Mexican! 🙂 Swap out the cognac for tequila and swap out the lemon for lime. It has a similar flavor profile to a margarita, which is perfect for Cinco de Mayo. After our Irish Sidecars were such a bit hit on St. Patrick’s Day, I was inspired to try another version to fit this holiday.

Mexican Sidecar

3/4 oz Grand Marnier

1/4 oz lime juice

3/4 oz of tequila

Dry sparkling wine

In a cocktail shaker, mix the first three ingredients with ice until very cold. Pour into a martini glass, and top with as much sparkling wine as you would like.
