Recipe by Hey Jude
We had this at a dinner party recently and I had to get the recipe from our hostess. She made it with the wine, I've never had it with the sparkling mineral water. It's pretty spicy from the Tabasco...add less if you can't take the heat.

- 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 24 pickled cocktail onions
- 1 medium lime, cut into 8 wedges
- 1 (1110 ml) bottlechilled brut-style dry sparkling wine or 4 (10 ounce) bottlesof chilled sparkling water
