Fill a small plate with margarita salt or sugar (or a mix!), and wet the edges of your glasses with lime juice or water. Dip tops of glasses in the salt/sugar to rim the edges. Fill each glass with ice.
Margarita salt or sugar
In a cocktail shaker, combine cranberry juice, lime juice, tequila, and orange liqueur with ice and shake well.
1 cup cranberry juice*, 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice, 1/2 cup tequila, 1/4 cup orange liqueur
Strain into prepared glasses. Take a quick taste and adjust as needed for personal preference - if more sweetness is desired, add a little simple syrup and give it a stir.
Top each glass with champagne, garnish with fresh cranberries and/or lime wedges and serve immediately. Cheers!
Champagne, Fresh cranberries and lime wedges
Type of cranberry juice: Just make sure you’re using cranberry juice and not a “cranberry cocktail” juice.Type of champagne: I prefer to use an Extra Dry or Brut, but you can use whatever type you prefer. This picture shows you the different variations in sweetness if you need help deciding.
