It’s MAYYYYYY!!!!

Not to mention Cinco de Mayo is on Saturday, I wrapped up an epic bachelorette party last weekend, and the coming weeks are going to be full of celebration and F-U-N.

So since I am in a particularly festive mood, I thought it was high time for a bubbly, boozy and tasty champagne punch to imbibe in during all the festivities.

I am not normally one for sweet drinks, but I have to admit that I have a special place in my heart for the tequila sunrise.

Every time I sip on one, I am usually somewhere tropical, enjoying a pool or the beach, and feeling like I am in heaven.

I rarely make them for myself when I am home, because I love to save that taste for something really special.

But that only lasts so long when you realize that your next tropical vacation isn’t going to be for several more months…

Don’t get me wrong, I am SUPER excited to go to Alaska for our honeymoon, but I have to get my taste of tropical, sunny happiness where I can.

SO, being the impatient lady that I am, I whipped up the classic tequila cocktail… but with a twist.

All of the flavors you love in a tequila sunrise are in this cocktail, but they are amplified even more with the addition of champagne. The bubbles help lighten up the overall sweetness of the typical recipe for the cocktail, and I love the extra kick you get from two types of booze.

Plus, by making this champagne punch in bulk, you don’t have to be running around making cocktails to order.

Instead you can kick back, enjoy whatever gathering you are at, and savor every sip – no matter if you are at the beach or you are fighting off the random cold days that pop up every so often (seriously though can someone stop the rain and cold here in Colorado already??).

Happy drinking, my friends!
