Mexico 70

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 Drink

Ryan Fitzgerald, who admits to a chronic case of World Cup fever, named this sparkling tequila-lime drink to honor the 1970 World Cup, which was played in Mexico. (Brazil won, led by Pelé.) It’s a terrific brunch cocktail.

  1. Ice
  2. 1 ounce blanco tequila
  3. 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
  4. 1/4 ounce agave nectar
  5. 3 ounces chilled dry sparkling wine
  6. 1 lime wheel or lime twist, for garnish
  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the tequila, lime juice and agave nectar and shake well. Fine-strain into a chilled flute and top with the sparkling wine. Garnish the drink with the lime wheel.
