If you’re looking for the most delicious summer cocktail, you have got to try these sparkling margaritas!
I would especially recommend this recipe if you’re looking to make a delicious pitcher cocktail to bring to your next cookout, pool party, taco night dinner party, or any summer gathering really! Most recently, I made them for Matt’s birthday party at our home and they were a huge hit!
These margaritas are simple to make and only require a few ingredients. Here’s what’s in them:
- Lime Juice
- Sparkling Rosé
- Agave Syrup (optional)
- Citrus Juicer: This little gadget is seriously worth every single penny and allows you to make fresh lime juice in just a few minutes. I cannot tell you how many limes I’ve partially wasted trying to hand squeeze them in the past! This juicer is extremely efficient with an auto-reversing juicing cone to provide maximum juice extraction! It also has an adjustable pulp control with a removable basket so you can collect and toss the pulp (or use it in another recipe)!
- Cocktail Shaker: We absolutely love the BruMate shaker! This stainless steel shaker/tumbler is leak-proof with a special technology that allows the ice to stay frozen for a really long time. So you can also use the tumbler as your cocktail glass (with a splash-proof drinking lid) when you’re done shaking it up!
- Pitcher: My pitcher is from Target and no longer available, but this one is super similar and only $10!
- Glasses/Tumblers: I absolutely love these Glass Wrapped Natural Tumblers for margaritas! I shared these in my Target Summer Finds post and still cannot get over how much of a steal this set is — only $15 for a 4 pack of glasses. The rattan-wrapped exterior is removable too so you can easily toss these glasses in the dishwasher.
- I like to set out a few Topo Chicos next to the pitcher for guests who want to add a splash of sparkling water.
- You can totally add a salt rim to these but they definitely don’t need it. The cocktail is so delicious on its own.
- Stir before drinking! If you’re making a pitcher, make sure to bring a spoon to stir it up before pouring each glass.
- Agave optional: Depending on how dry or sweet your sparkling rose is, you can add a splash of agave if you need to sweeten it up! I’ve used a sweeter rosé wine and not needed agave. However, for the last batch I whipped up, I used a dry rose so I added about 3 oz of agave to my pitcher and it was perfect.
- 1 oz Tequila
- 1/2 oz Cointreau
- 1 oz Lime Juice

It depends on how sweet you like your cocktails. I recommend starting with a dry rose and then adding agave syrup if you need it!
YES! You can pour all of the ingredients into your pitcher (EXCEPT the rose wine) and refrigerate for a few hours before serving. When ready to serve, add your sparkling wine!
