Tequila gets a bad rap from people who may have overindulged and can no longer tolerate it. But sipping on good tequila is one thing we appreciate. And while we love a good golden margarita, there are so many other good tequila drinks out there.

Mimosas are a great make ahead drink.

Pro Tip: If you're looking to lower the alcohol content swap in club soda for the sparkling wine.
You sure can! It will give it a slightly different flavor but will still be delicious! You can swap in orange juice, tangerine juice or even cranberry juice.
You may need to adjust the amount of simple syrup or eliminate it all together depending on how sweet the juice is that you use.
Yes and no. I know it’s tempting to cheap out on the sparkling wine since it’s being mixed with fruit juice, but don’t do that.
Use something you would drink on its own. It makes a difference.
The style of glass makes a difference when you are drinking sparkling wine because the bubbles last longer.The more they are exposed to air, the faster they go away.
Don't worry, your glasses don't need to match! We love to mix in different styles of flutes for a fun look.
Brunch is the easiest meal to host, especially when you can make so much of it ahead of time.
