1 1⁄2 oz Blanco tequila
3⁄4 oz Lime juice
1⁄2 oz Orgeat
1⁄2 oz Blue Curaçao
1⁄2 oz Falernum
2 oz Sparkling white wine (I used Prosecco.)

Add Champagne or sparkling wine to a chilled coupe. Shake, double strain.


It calls for Velvet Falernum, but I used homemade falernum #10. I was afraid the drink would be too sweet. But it had a great balance of sweet and sour.

  • I replaced the Blue Curaçao with Triple sec, much better in taste and colour, Prosecco as the sparkling content
