Ingredients

1/2 cup sugar

1 1/2 ounces silver tequila

3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice

1 teaspoon orange marmalade

2 ounces prosecco or other sparkling wine

Orange twist, for garnish

Directions

  1. Combine the sugar and 1/4 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat and stir until the sugar is dissolved, 3 to 5 minutes. Let cool completely. (The syrup will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.)
  2. Combine the tequila, lemon juice, 1/2 ounce of the sugar syrup and the marmalade in a cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Shake until very cold, 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  3. Strain into a tall glass filled with ice. Top with the prosecco and garnish with an orange twist.
