It's almost time to ring in 2014!

I truly can't believe 2013 is already headed out the door.  Where does time go??  Well, since time seems to go by so fast, I decided to begin my celebration of the changing of the year early ... and spent some time in the kitchen today with this Champagne Margarita.

A champagne margarita, you ask?

Champagne Margaritas combine the wonderful flavors of champagne and margaritas in one fun cocktail ~ perfect for adding a unique twist to your New Year's Eve celebration, or to your random Tuesday.

Yes!  Complete with a fun and sparkly sugared rim.

It's a truly different way to enjoy your champagne. {Well, a truly different way to enjoy your sparkling wine, if we're going to be exact ... since most of us drink sparkling wine, not true champagne from France.  Just wanted to get that out there so I don't get bombarded by champagne aficionados.}

So if you'd like to raise your glass on New Year's Eve ... or on a random Tuesday, let's say ... with the lime-y zing of a margarita in your champagne glass, here's how!

Start by combining some turbinado sugar {sugar-in-the-raw} and granulated sugar in a shallow dish.

You can use just granulated sugar ... it'll work fine.  I just like the look of the two types of sugar together.  It's extra pretty!

Then wet the rim of each glass with a lime wedge and dip the rims in the sugar mixture.

Voila!  Sparkly sugared rims!

Combine the margarita ingredients and champagne in an ice-filled cocktail shaker and shake ... gently ... to combine and chill.  Then pour into the prepared glasses ...

... and enjoy.

Mmmmmmm.  Lime-y bubbles in your Champagne Margarita.

Oh, and I encourage you to start the New Year celebration early, too ~  It's even more fun that way!

Happy New Year to you!!

  1. Oh, yes! Perfect for that Midnight toast. I wonder what it would taste like to blend sugar and salt for the rims? I'll let you know! :-). Happy New Year!

    1. For margarita-with-salt lovers, I think a combination of both sugar and salt would taste wonderful! I'm a margarita-withOUT-salt girl, so for me, sugar all the way on this one! Please do let me know how the combo works, Linda. I'd love to hear!

  16. This Sunday is Oscar Sunday which I always drink champagne while watching. It is also Nat'l Margarita day so I went in search of Champagne Margaritas and found yours. Sounds wonderful. I think, hoowever, I will make the tiniest of adjustments and add the champagne into the finished shaken margarita and then pour it into the glass. This should allow a decent mix of the two and keep a better proportion of bubbles. I know it is a sacrifice, but I'm willing to test this and will report back.
