Big Spender on a Budget

My version of the “Big Spender” champagne cocktail, for those of us with limited financial means.



  • 3/4 oz tequila (recommend Dos Manos Blanco)
  • 3/4 oz fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 oz Mount Gay Eclipse rum
  • Dash of blood orange bitters
  • Rose sparkling wine (such as Louis Bouillot Cremant de Bourgogne Rose)
  • Orange twist


  1. Lightly shake all ingredients except sparkling wine over ice. Just enough to chill
  2. Strain into a champagne flute
  3. Top with the chilled rose
  4. Garnish with an orange twist
