Tasty Swaps & Add-Ins

Don’t have any champagne? Prosecco or a white sparkling wine will work, too.  Want to make it a frozen drink? Blend your margarita mixture with ice for a slushy version. Or, if you want to add some heat, muddle in some jalapeño slices for a spicy kick. YUM.

FAQs

Which champagne goes well with strawberries?

We suggest using demi-sec for this cocktail. Its sweet taste pairs perfectly with the strawberries and tequila.

Yes, you can! Make a large batch of the margarita mixture (without adding champagne) and store it in the fridge. When ready to serve, add champagne to each individual glass for optimal bubbly goodness.
