Umm, hello delectable! This drink is good, really good. Which also mean it’s potent… the first time I was recipe testing this drink, I finished one and thought my recipe was perfect. When I remade it I realized that the recipe needed a few tweaks. Haha! But, now I give you the final, perfect, product!
At first I made this Sparkling Paloma with agave nectar. NOT GOOD. The agave nectar brings out the taste of the tequila, so I switched to maple syrup. The maple syrup adds a rich flavor to the drink.
This Sparkling Paloma would be best served before dinner when guests first arrive. It would be perfect for New Years Eve too. If cranberries are in season, use those as a garnish. If not, use a raspberry or blackberry! Cheers!
- 1/4 cup agave tequila (2 oz)
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1 grapefruit, juiced
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- sparkling wine (I used Chandon)
- fresh cranberries, to garnish [optional]
Fill a shaker with ice. Add tequila, lime juice, grapefruit juice, maple syrup and shake well
Split mixture between two champagne glasses. Top off glasses with sparkling wine and garnish with a few fresh cranberries. Serve immediately and enjoy!
