Toast to a TV Legend With the Marga-Regis

By  November 14, 2011

On November 18th, raise a glass to the longest running broadcaster, Regis Philbin, with Sauza Tequila’s Marga-Regis! as he signs off from over 28 years on the air.  Just steps away from ABC studios, sip on this sparkling kiwi margarita, a “girly” cocktail that “Reeg” would order at one of his favorite NYC hot spots, The Atlantic Grill.

This delicious Marga-Regis! features kiwi as a key ingredient for a little touch of green in honor of the beloved host’s extreme Irish pride for alma mater Notre Dame. It is the perfect easy-to-make addition to at-home celebration for the final episode of Live! With Regis and Kelly.

The Marga-Regis!


Kiwi, peeled and sliced, estimating three ¼ inch slices per cocktail, reserving 1 for garnish

4 parts Sauza Tequila
1 part simple syrup
1 part fresh lemon juice
1 part sparkling wine

In a shaker, muddle kiwi. Add next three ingredients. Shake and pour over fresh ice. Top with sparkling wine and garnish with a slice of kiwi.
