This cocktail is not only inspired by a Texan, it was created by one. Sweet Life is a site by a Texan Girl called Vianney Rodriguez and covers not only cocktails but food too. This Recipe is one I found randomly a few weeks ago and, after testing it out at home, it is extremely refreshing and moreish. I find it is best made using with good quality champagne, although if using Sparkling wine, a Prosecco or Demi-Sec should do the trick.
Should you wish to check out the original article or even a few of her other recipes (they’re really good by the way) then head on over to Sweet Life and enjoy yourself a little…
