  • ⅓ cup coarse salt
  • ice
  • 8 ounces fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 4 ounces homemade simple syrup* (or store-bought agave syrup)
  • 3 ounces orange liqueur
  • 1 (750 ml) bottle Champagne, chilled
Instructions
  1. Rub a lime wedge over the edge of four glasses and then dip each in salt to evenly coat the rim. Fill the glasses with ice and set aside.
  2. In a pitcher, combine the lime juice, simple syrup, and orange liqueur and mix until well-incorporated. Divide among the prepared glasses and top off each with champagne. Serve with lime wedges as garnish. Enjoy!
  3. *To make simple syrup, combine ½ cup water with ½ cup granulated sugar in a small saucepan and set over moderate heat. Bring to a simmer and cook until the sugar has dissolved. Transfer to a heat-proof measuring cup and allow to cool completely.
