You can make the most fabulous margaritas at home, which is what we’ve done with this bright and festive champagne margarita recipe! The champagne gives the beverage a dry, bubbly vibe and is paired beautifully with citrus liquor, fresh lime juice and orange juice.
The results are super crisp and smooth, the kind of taste you’ve only fantasized about. Margaritas can be pretty personal, so use this recipe as a guideline for your taste buds. We like using each ingredient in this recipe because they create the authentic margarita flavor without having to use a mix.
The orange juice and the agave are responsible for sweetening the drink, so you should really add these ingredients to taste. You can also use any kind of tequila. We selected silver because it’s a solid mid-grade choice. If you want something a little fancier, go for the gold!

Cava is a Spanish sparkling wine that’s dry and full of flavor—perfect for margaritas! But of course, any dry sparkling wine will do.
