Impress your guests with two tequila-based cocktail recipes that incorporate the beloved sparkling wine into the mix. These cocktails will add an extra sparkle to your celebration while still staying true to the Mexican holiday's spirit. Whether you prefer a sweet or tart drink, we have got you covered. Let's pop open a bottle of bubbles and get mixing!

Sparkling Paloma

The Sparkling Paloma is a refreshing and tangy cocktail that will make you feel like you're sipping on a tropical beach. The sweetness from the honey is balanced out by the tartness from the grapefruit and lime juices, while the bubbles add a light and fizzy touch. This cocktail is perfect for those who love a refreshing drink that is not too sweet.

2 oz tequila blanco
½ oz fresh grapefruit juice
½ oz fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon honey

Mexican 75

The Mexican 75 is a twist on the classic French 75, which is typically made with gin. This cocktail is perfect for those who love a sweet and sour combination, as the agave nectar balances out the tart lemon juice. The sparkling wine adds a touch of elegance to the drink, making it perfect for a special occasion like Cinco de Mayo.
