You know you’ve made it when a drink is made after you. To say so long to Regis Philbin who will be bidding adieu to his on-air television career this week after almost 30 years, Sauza Tequila has created the “Marga-Regis” in his honor. The “Marga-Regis” is a very intriguing blend of fresh kiwi, simply syrup, lemon juice, sparkling wine, and of course Sauza Tequila. The cool thing about this drink is that it’s actually being served at the Atlantic Grill in New York City so if you’re in the New York area you can have this drink made by a professional. But if you’re hundreds of miles away from the Big Apple, like myself, then you can whip up your own “Marga-Regis” using the recipe below.
Kiwi, peeled and sliced, estimating three ¼ inch slices per cocktail, reserving 1 for garnish
4 parts Sauza® Silver Tequila
1 part simple syrup
1 part fresh lemon juice
1 part sparkling wine
In a shaker, muddle kiwi. Add next three ingredients. Shake and pour over fresh ice. Top with sparkling wine and garnish with a slice of kiwi.
