This Champagne Margarita Cocktail Recipe Will Replace Your Brunch Rosé

I’m very particular about my cocktails, but I like margaritas of all types, from sweet to sour, and in all forms. Margaritas are certainly high in my top-10 list of all-time favorite cocktails. If you’re looking for a new margarita recipe to fall head-over-heels for, let me introduce you to the sparkling passion fruit margarita! It’s tangy, salty, sweet and sparkly — in other words, it’s your new cocktail obsession. This Champagne cocktail would be a hit at a (boozy) brunch, a fabulous wedding shower, your best friend’s birthday, or simply a day that ends in “y.”

Ingredients:

Makes 2 cocktails

  • 3 1/2 fluid ounces Tequila blanco
  • 2 Tablespoons agave syrup (or to taste)
  • juice of half a lime
  • pulp of 2 passion fruit
  • coarse sea salt to frost the glass
  • zest of a lime to frost the glass
  • plenty of fresh ice
  • passionfruit slices to garnish
  • chilled Champagne or Prosecco to top up

Instructions:

  1. Cut the passion fruit in half and spoon the pulp into a large glass or cocktail shaker.
  2. Pour in the tequila (remember: This is for two servings!).
  3. Pour in the agave syrup and the lime juice.
  4. Stir thoroughly and taste for sweetness — add more agave syrup if you prefer it sweeter or more lime juice if you like it sour.
  5. Fill a shallow plate with coarse sea salt and add the zest of a lime.
  6. Moisten the rim of two chilled Champagne coupe or margarita glasses with a lime wedge.
  7. Invert the glasses onto the plate to frost the glasses.
  8. Half fill the glasses with crushed ice. If you can’t find crushed ice, simple blitz a handful of ice cubes in a high-power blender.
  9. Strain the cocktail between the two glasses.
  10. If you like a little crunch, add a tablespoon of the passion fruit seeds in each glass — up to you.
  11. Top with chilled Champagne or Prosecco and garnish with a thin slice of passion fruit. Serve immediately!
