Sparkling Chimayo Cocktail

Sparkling Chimayo Cocktail |
Hi friends! A few years for Christmas my good friend KC gave me the cutest gift basket, with sparkling cider, tequila and crème de cassis. Strange combination? Not when you saw the recipe card attached to the basket, for a Sparkling Chimayo Cocktail! I had never heard of the cocktail, but after rooming with KC during my college years, I knew better than to question her taste in cocktails. It took us a while to give it a try, but once we did there was no turning back!

I just love Sparkling Cocktail Recipes! Don’t you? There’s something about the extra bubbly and fizz that makes me giddy. So naturally I love this drink. And there aren’t many times that I give tequila a go outside of margaritas, but this is one tasty exception. The Sparkling Chimayo Cocktail always seems so festive to me, so naturally I whipped up a batch to share some of our favorite New Years Entertaining ideas this year.
