Lone Ranger Cocktail With Tequila Rose Sparkling Wine Lemon Juice And Simple Syrup

The Lone Ranger cocktail offers a unique combination of tequila and sparkling wine, particularly rosé, harmoniously brought together by the addition of freshly-squeezed lemon. Crafted by acclaimed bartender Jeffrey Morgenthaler, known for his establishments Pacific Standard and The Sunset Room in Portland, Oregon, this delightful libation was born during his tenure at the now-closed Clyde Common. Morgenthaler’s goal was to create a light and invigorating brunch beverage that could be savored at any time of day.

Describing the Lone Ranger, Morgenthaler aptly summarizes it as lower proof, bubbly, pink, and delicious. This innovative concoction takes inspiration from the classic French 75, a well-known sparkling wine cocktail. While the basic framework remains intact, Morgenthaler swaps out gin for tequila, infusing the drink with a distinct character, and introduces sparkling rosé for a refreshing fruity undertone. The subtle hints of ripe, red berries beautifully complement the cocktail’s tequila foundation.

Experience the Lone Ranger for yourself—a captivating twist on a beloved classic—offering a low-proof, effervescent, and delectable experience that is perfect for brunch or anytime enjoyment.
