Mexican 75

Ingredients

Eric Appelby, the head bartender at San Francisco restaurant-bar Tres (formerly Tres Agaves), believes tequila is the liquor of choice, and he’s always looking for a way to slip it into a drink. With the Mexican 75 cocktail, it is a spin-off of the French 75 by replacing the gin with tequila—some would call that disrespectful, but most just say that is tasty.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 oz Tequila
  • 1/2 oz Fresh-Squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 oz Agave Nectar
  • 4 oz Blanc de Blancs Champagne (or sparkling wine)
  • Garnish: Lime twist

PREPARATION

Combine tequila, lime juice, and agave nectar in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously until chilled, then strain into a champagne flute. Top with champagne and garnish with a lime twist (if using).
