Cocktail Hour: Ring in the New Year with Champagne Margaritas

As 2018 comes to a close and people begin to make their list of New Year’s resolutions, chose one of the best holiday cocktails to bring in the new year— champagne margaritas.

The New Year cocktail brings in two of our personal favorite ingredients—champagne for celebration and tequila for some added fun. The recipe, which is provided by Delish, is an easy-to-make concoction for any New Year’s Eve party this year.

1/2 c. fresh lime juice

1 c. silver tequila

1/2 c. orange liqueur

1 bottle champagne (about 3 cups)

lime wedges, for rim

salt, for rim

Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher and stir well.

Rub lime wedges around the rim of each champagne flute and dip the rims in coarse salt.

Divide margaritas between flutes and garnish with lime wedges.
