Ingredients and Substitutions to Make Pink Champagne Margaritas
- Orange Liqueur – Grand Marnier is a cognac based orange liqueur. You can use that one or whatever type of orange liqueur you can find.
- Lime Juice – Fresh squeezed lime juice is always best! There’s just something better about the vibrant flavor. However, you can use store bought lime juice in a pinch- I’ll never tell!
- Tequila – Any type of blanco tequila works beautifully here… you can learn more in my Tequila Guide.
- Champagne – We used a pink sparkling wine in this recipe for the pretty color! Choose your favorite Champagne, Prosecco or any other sparkling wine – I used this sweeter Pink Moscato for this cocktail and it worked beautifully!
- Replace the lime juice with fresh squeezed orange juice or lemon juice.
- Try with your favorite champagne! This cocktail recipe works with a dryer bubbly bottle or your favorite sweet one.
- Prefer wine over champagne? Try a Wine Margarita.
- Replace the lime juice with fresh squeezed grapefruit juice and the orange liqueur with grapefruit soda for a sparkling Champagne Paloma!

- Fresh Juice – Of course you can buy premade lime juice in the produce section. But you’ll be so glad you went to the extra step of squeezing the limes, and it’s easy to make the juice ahead for Margarita Mix and store it before a party!
- Quality Tequila – This really does make a world of difference. Don’t skip my complete Tequila Guide for all the best options!
- Shake – Instead of stirring. A cocktail shaker can be a fun change. It’s a bit more formal for shaking or stirring your margarita.
