I've watched Regis Philbin for years, ever since my oldest son was growing up with ex co-host Kathy Gifford's son, Cody. And now Regis is signing off from morning television.
He will be missed.
Our friends from Sauza Tequila invite you all to raise a glass to the longest running broadcaster, Regis Philbin, with Sauza Tequila’s Marga-Regis! as he signs off from over 28 years on-air today.
Yu can order this sparkling kiwi margarita, a “girly” cocktail that “Reeg” would order, just steps away from ABC studios at one of his favorite NYC hot spots, The Atlantic Grill.
This delicious Marga-Regis! features kiwi as a key ingredient for a little touch of green in honor of the beloved host’s extreme Irish pride for alma mater Notre Dame. It is the perfect easy-to-make addition to at-home celebrations for the final episode of “Live! With Regis and Kelly”.
Kiwi, peeled and sliced, estimating three ¼ inch slices per cocktail, reserving 1 for garnish
4 parts Sauza® Tequila
1 part simple syrup
1 part fresh lemon juice
1 part sparkling wine
In a shaker, muddle kiwi (note: I asked, and this seems pretty much like just squishing the kiwi up! If you don't have a shaker, you can "muddle" your kiwi with the back of a spoon--Viv).
Add next three ingredients. Shake and pour over fresh ice.
Top with sparkling wine and garnish with a slice of kiwi.
