Ingredients

  • 1 and 1/2 oz Silver tequila
  • 1 oz Lemon juice
  • ½ oz Rich simple syrup two parts sugar, one part water
  • 2 oz Brut rosé sparkling wine
  • Lemon twist for garnish

Instructions

  • Fill a Collins glass with ice.
  • Put the tequila, lemon juice and simple syrup in a shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously. Open the shaker, add the sparkling wine (do not shake) and strain into the ice filled glass.
  • Garnish with a lemon twist.

To Make the Lemon Twist:

  • Use a vegetable peeler to cut long strips from lemon rind. Trim edges with knife and cut ends on the diagonal. Wrap around a toothpick or a skewer and slide into beverage.

Notes

To make simple syrup, heat water and sugar over medium high heat, remove from heat as soon as all sugar has been dissolved. Chill.[br][br]I've found what really speeds up the process is to heat half the water with the sugar and then once the sugar is dissolved I add the other half as ice water and pour the mixture into a container to chill.
