- Balanced flavors: The combination of silver tequila, fresh lime juice, and Rosé syrup results in a well-balanced cocktail that’s not too sweet, not too sour, and not too strong—a crowd-pleaser for sure!
Rosé syrup: If you don’t want to make your own Rosé syrup, you can use store-bought simple syrup or make a simple syrup yourself using equal parts sugar and water.
Tequila: Silver tequila works better than aged tequila to retain the cocktail’s vibrant color.
Lime juice: Use fresh lime juice or bottle lime juice if needed. I don’t recommend using lemon juice or orange juice.
Sparkling Rosé wine: Choose a dry sparkling Rosé wine (Brut) or Rosé champagne
Ice cubes: To add to the cocktail shaker.
Salt rim: Lime wedge and berry or margarita salt for the salt rim.
- Chill Ingredients: Ensure all your ingredients, including the Rosé wine and tequila, are well chilled. This helps create a crisp and refreshing cocktail.
- Taste the mix: Taste your mix before pouring it into the glass to ensure the balance of flavors suits your taste. Adjust the sweetness or tartness by adding more Rosé syrup or lime juice.
Serve sparkling Rosé margaritas in salt-rimmed champagne flutes. Garnish it with a slice of lime or fresh berries such as strawberries.
Spice it up: Add a few jalapeno slices to the shaker for a spicy Rosé cocktail.
Floral: If you love floral cocktails, add some rose water or rose syrup instead of sugar syrup to the mix and garnish with dried or fresh rose petals. Perfect for Valentine’s Day.
Rosé float: Serve over a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a delightful frozen treat.
Classic cocktail: Add 1/4 oz triple sec or Grand Marnier to create a classic margarita with a Rosé twist.
While you can pre-mix the base ingredients, add the sparkling Rosé just before serving to retain its fizziness.
Rosé syrup is infused with Rosé wine, giving it a unique flavor. Regular simple syrup is made with sugar and water, without additional flavorings.
