I found this on the Women and Wine website. It is Maria Hunt's signature cocktail that she created for Cinco de Mayo celebrations. You can use any sort of sparkling wine you wish, such as French champagne, Spanish cava or Italian asti spumante. And for a lovely pink cocktail, use pink champagne and add a splash of your favorite rose water. It's just a delicious as written below though.
