Pick out your favorite festive glasses, you can use a fun champagne flute or a margarita glass!
Ready your rim! Sugar in the raw and regular sugar on a small plate, use a lime slice to moisten the rim of your glass and dip in the sugar mixture.
Grab your fav Margarita mix - you can use a pre-made or homemade - your pick! We selected Tres Agaves organic mix from World Market! You'll just need a cocktail shaker, white tequila, and ice for this part. Shake it up (dance around if you need to!) and pour mixture into glasses. About 1/2 way will do it!
Top off with chilled prosecco and garnish with a lime wedge and a fresh sprig of rosemary or mint for an extra pop of fresh!
Pair with your favorite taco recipe and you've got a party!
